where can they be seen and what is different/special with/about them
that make it attractive for the broad public?

if your package selection of yours is not for a broad enough public, or
if we can't integrate your selection into the existing onces, then we're
not able to do that.

please also read my notes about hosting in this mail:

not excately. for a short time, there was a contrib directory with only
two testimages containing a newer syslinux in order to let people verify
that syslinux 3.71 fixed the regressions in 3.70 from fall 2008.

for reasons in the cited mail above, there have never beend and most
likely never be such a possibility to host images permanently other than
the few ones we currently prebuild.

if you order  your own root server, i'll help you setting it up so you
can do that by yourself.
