ok, seems there's a missunderstanding.

what i like:

  * feedback if current live-boot and live-boot from experimental
    work as expected (in particular wrt/ persistency) in (otherwise)
    unmodified wheezy and/or sid live-systems (built with live-build

what i got from you:

   * interesting message that in some other combination (squeeze +
     'unbackported' initramfs-tools from sid), the current versions
     of live-boot and live-config from experimental don't work.

what i ment with the previous mail:

  * while this is interesting to know and eventually fix why it's
    failing in your specific combination as you described (as, from a
    live-* point of view, it should not fail and just work),
    the combination you were testing is not a priority to look at and
    i would only look at that myself if everything else would be
    already working as it should.

misunderstanding solved?

absolutely; the squeeze + backports (kernel, initramfs, klibc) is a
priority - we do support and encurage people to use live-{boot,config}
from stable+1 on stable.

with 'unbackported' initramfs-tools from sid on squeeze, e.g. for
network related stuff during initramfs (e.g. netboot, fetch, etc.) will
not work (klibc and /run stuff).
