I think our building process is bigger than just an Ubuntu distribution 
builder, it can be used to build a Debian distribution too. But more, 
I'm expecting to apply this same formula to building documentation and 
tutorials, which might not be tied to any operating system. We could 
build a html based windows distribution of docs.
Hence the idea of picking the "Arramagong" name which does not constrain 
our project from growing by defining what the project is. (Note we have 
grown beyond "LiveDVD" and "GISVM" because we can provide both those 
formats, and very soon will likely release on a USB stick too.)

Also, there are already ubuntugis and debiangis projects, which have 
claimed the association with Ubuntu.
