I apologise for any confusion caused by my previous reply.
With regards to a couple of points you have made in this, and your previous, post nothing about Live Build is clear anymore. Actually that is incorrect, the only thing that is clear is Daniel has given up with it as a Debian project and as the lead developer it seems Live Build as a Debian project is discontinued (remember we were told it was deprecated). Your Previous post on the issue of Live build mentioned something about people taking Live Build on, has this happened? Are you, personally, keeping Live Build going?
The splitting of the resource pool had happened well before anyone in Live Build (thats what the available evidence suggests) or its user community new anything about it. Debian CD split the pool of resources by making their own project (which they are entitled to do) and not assisting Live Build (which they are also entitled to do).
The discussions in coming months are a rather mute point now aren't they? What has happened has happened, what has been said has been said, and the users of Live Build are caught in the middle and are going to have to either wait for someone to fill them in or move to using Live Wrapper (which isn't really usable at the moment). My point here is this process of discussions over the coming months really needs to be quicker. It is unfair to people who depend on these tools to let this drag on. I'm simply not willing to start releasing iso images for a stable system for the South Pacific when the tool I've been building it on and getting people to test it with is in a state of limbo and the tool that is supposed to replace it isn't usable.
If Live Build lives on then great, if it doesn't then so be it. One day someone in the Debian project will provide some clear statements as to what is going on and then downstream projects like mine and many others can get on with their work without wondering if we can keep using the tool we have taken time to learn how to use or if we have to switch to another "live" tool and then learn new things.
Until we actually hear something definitive my project is officially on hold. The 2 "disjoint groups", as you called them, need to have these discussions and get to work sooner rather than later so the effects of this mess don't linger on. Please keep us informed.
