I've tried a few times to get working with the debian-live folks, but
my problem at the moment is lack of stability - we've not had any
release candidate live CDs (for example), and I think the change over
from make-live to live-helper has come too late before the release.
Yes, I agree.
I'd *love* to get some live CDs released with etch, but it's too late
now to hold the release up for them. Maybe once the release is done,
we can get some stable, tested images copied onto cdimage. I think
that's probably the best way to go for now. After etch, I'd like to
get regular builds done and hosted alongside the regular CDs too.
Sounds a better solution. Do you have some time to work on the
'build/copy to cd image task' before debconf? I'll be able to start
helping you actively at 16 Apr (the day after FISL). I think that we
will have some months to setup live-helper in parallel with testing
images or maybe just do that during debconf.
Do you guys from -publicity and press team consider a new PR pointing
to the fact that we've added live cd images to the cdimage.d.o after
we do it ?
