openSUSE : kiwi
both are script based available for the command line. live-helper has been a
moving target for me. I have not tried kiwi in a while. This reflects my
personal very biased view and I am looking for comments. A year back both
solutions were barely usable (for me).
openSUSE: private beta openSUSE studio (unclear when they will open it)
Debian: I am not aware of any
Just guessing from the title: It is intended to be a frontend GUI to
create a live medium? I would always prefer scripts to make the process
reproducible. If it is a frontend to create scripts it might be interesting.
openSUSE: all packages in openSUSE buildservice can be included
Debian: a custom sources list for apt needs to be carefully crafted
I've thought metapackages basically solve this problem.
openSUSE: can be added via webinterface
Debian: can be manually supplied in target directories, it is kind of hard for
me to track when changes need to happen
What kind of changes?
openSUSE: supposedly available via their servers
Debian: needs to be hosted by us
Might be subject for discussion.
Here are some things I would like to see covered from the GNUmed perspective.
1.) ease of use when simply updating the package list such as a new GNUmed
Isn't this just be done by simple rebuild of the ISO?
2.) point and click switching between USB, CD, network media
Sounds like an interesting feature.
