So during the 2.13 cycle, Brent made a VMPlayer image
for Gnome.  I don't think it ever got released to the
general public, but a number of our documentation folks
were using it.

As I understand it, Brent used the LiveCD stuff as a
starting point for the image, which in turn is based
off of Ubuntu.

Both processes sound similar to me, just different in
how they ultimately "encode" the final operating system.
This naturally leads me to ask if we could have a team
that produces both a VM and a LiveCD for every one of
our unstable releases.  It seems to me that, if you're
already making one, making the other shouldn't be much
additional effort.

Documentation people seem to really like using the VM,
so that would provide a number of test users who are
really hammering into the system.  If the VM and LiveCD
come from the same setup, then feedback on one equals
feedback on the other.
