that's ok.

in the past six years, we have consistently used 'debian-live' to refere
to the project, always and everywhere, and using this as a package name
does not ever make sense, not even in future :)

having said this already three years ago in the first reply in
and, nothing changed since then, just shows that we really are sure of
not ever wanting to use a package called 'debian-live'.

hence, to word it explicitly again, our choice of name for the
pseudo-package would then be 'debian-live'.

since debian live is not a component of a system but more a type of
systems, it would probably make more sense to use the following wording:

  "General problems with Debian Live systems"
