Those todo items are actually still open. Well, I fixed the icon in the repo, but the live CD still has the beta repos. I want to solve at least bug #39042 and then generate a 3.1 live CD before New Year.

Thanks for helping with this, Michał. I've released a beta 1 live CD for i386.

- Syslinux splash
- ISO preparer and publisher (set using auto/config file)

To do:
- Rename "Debian Installer" icon to "gNewSense Installer" or just "Install"
- Make sure we can use archive.gnewsense.org for the final release
- Review Debian-specific documentation

I have an initial patch for this at bzr://elderthing.mtjm.eu/gnewsense/live-build.

It also removes example hooks that are useful only with nonfree software.

Known problems:

  • Debian syslinux-splash
  • "Debian Installer" icon (debian-installer-launcher provides it)
  • installer doesn't work #38012
  • beta.gnewsense.org URLs probably won't be used for the release
  • there is code for installation of Debian-specific documentation
  • LB_ISO_PREPARER and LB_ISO_PUBLISHER probably should be modified, I don't know what values would be appropriate
  • the patch probably doesn't comply with the coding style, I will check it when rewriting it for a newer release when it will be otherwise ok to report upstream

sadly not,I lost it work when my laptop died. I was hoping to have time to work in the holidays but at this point I don't have at time for the foreseeable future.

Karl, do you have (the beginnings of) a patch for this? Do you still want to work on it?

I'll get back to debian-live hacking after the buildd/infrastructure bugs are cleared up.
