[FWIW, I actually put together a 2.11 liveCD at one point, but it
ended up being an 800M iso, so I did not distribute ;)

For the record, what I said I'd do at GUADEC that I have failed to do:
* put up gnome.org/projects/livecd so that gnoppix.org can be redirected there
* talk to amu about his scripts. I was waiting on you, Marcus, for
that, so I sort of have an excuse there ;)
* put up a 2.11 liveCD
things I think in the end I disagree with gnoppix about:
* naming; I want it called simply the GNOME LiveCD. No one outside a
core group of geeks knows what knoppix is, and so calling it gnoppix
is (1) marketing to the wrong group and (2) confusing to newbies.
* installation: as already pointed out
what has irritated me in the past:
* choice of defaults: gnoppix defaults to firefox, for example; a
custom theme, and for a long time to german :)
* 'distinct' community- the liveCD community, as it is, should be
gnomesupport.org; there is no need for separate boards, etc.
I think we can fix both of these last to (christian implied as much
during GUADEC at least) so much of the ball is in my court right now.
Unfortunately, I don't have very much free time right now. :/ If
someone wanted to put up a gnome.org/projects/livecd/ that would be
great; I'd hoped to put it together based on andreasn's work, but that
hasn't happened, obviously. :/
