At this point, it might be helpful to try and define the goals for
project a little more clearly... for example, what are we planning to
deliver? Is the goal to create a generic build system for generating
customized Fedora bootable CD's... or are we trying to assemble a "one
size fits all" release with a flexible set of startup options?
To me the most important thing is to be sure a live CD can be cut from
rawhide, or any test release or final release (modulo bugs of course).
In other words the really important goal is to have a "convert this
Fedora to Live CD" system rather than a one-off fork at a given point in
I personally think that for a variety of reasons all packages should be
changed to work fine by default on a read-only filesystem, and detection
of hardware should all be dynamic, so essentially the live CD changes
should all be able to go "upstream" (into the standard packages)
eventually. But doing that in the first cut probably isn't realistic.
Last but not least, leadership. Is there a "benevolent
this point? :)
Whoever does the work ;-)
