While Debian Live is really nice, some things could be improved about
it. Each time I wanted to use it, I ran into an issue that required
going to IRC to ask how to work around the problem (the problem was
always already known).

It would really be a good thing to have tested snapshots (in addition
to the daily builds, which are not guaranteed to work AFAIK), so people
could just download images, write them to an USB stick, and enjoy. We
don't need to have perfectly up-to-date tested snapshots. Updating them
every 2-3 months would clearly be enough.
