Re: An abrupt End to Debian Live

Hello Daniel,

I'm really sorry to hear that! I would like to say thank you for
your hard work on the live-build project. This tool is/was really
helpful to realize my little project and I was happy when I found
this great solution back in 2009.

All what I have read in regard to the end of Debian live makes me
feel sad. What is currently happening feels very wrong to me. It
makes me think different of the Debian project.

I wish you all the best! THANK YOU very much!

Kind regards
