I think it is great that the arramagong build process is being used for 
other distributions. That was always my hope - that we would be able to 
use the build process to target specific different communities.

I'm actually very interested to understand what educators would want 
from the LiveDVD so that we can tailor the DVD accordingly. (I'm 
assuming that we should bundle tutorials and training material).

I assume that any improvements that you make along the way you will role 
back into the build process so that it is useful for others too.
