That's a reasonable point indeed, but I like your proposed solution:
simply have a 'restore this to being a regular data stick' button in
the luc interface. Seems like the best approach to me.

I'm afraid I don't know either, all the overlay stuff is ancient
magic I've never dug into :(

All distros which ship hybridized ISOs really *need* a tool like
I've actually poked through the docs for most distros and they all
some kind of instructions for doing a dd-style write on Windows and
X, and they all kinda suck just like ours. So I think a shared tool
with good cross-OS support would be a huge win for all of us. I
included links to the support pages for the major distros here:
you can see from that that we're all promoting a kind of mish-mash of
non-purpose-built tools which don't really give a great user
Having one finalized tool for all distributions is frankly a no-go for
me. The last thing I wanna have is a tool that people download at
and that offers them a list of distributions including
our competition. That would not be wise.
Having some common base which every distribution would use to build
their own branded LUC on? Why not, but it's definitely not in the scope
of the current initiative. We will be glad if we have it ready for
Fedora by 24. And I also think it's in the interest of other
distributions to drive the project in that direction, we're not the
ones to create the demand.
