So you are basicly saying that starting project that doesn't have a
community yet has no chance to be added to the dvd ?
Maybe there is a difference between the FOSS4G DVD and what you call the liveDVD.
I was referring to your blog post :

I was thinking it was a special version regrouping applications available at the foss ?
or am I wrong ? to I need to maintain it afterward ???

There is point making my own DVD, the objective is to show the project exist, not for me
but for the community.

The project I would like to include is Puzzle-GIS :

It' a Java Desktop GIS build on Netbeans Platform and GeotoolKit.org.
the version I will propose is v0.7 which is not available for download yet.
it will take ~80Mb and does not need install script.
