Creating a Framework

Hi all,

As you may have noticed, I've been adding content to the livecd's 
Subversion repository.  There's not much there, but it can be viewed here:

or you can always check it out to your local mahine:

svc co svn://

Currently, all that's in the repo is an initramfs dir with an init.c 
file and a Makefile which will produce an initramfs image to be added to 
a 2.6 kernel, and a README file that is documenting the basic procedure 
for building an official livecd.

What I'd like to hear from you all, is any suggestions on what you feel 
would be the best way to allow for contributors to this project.  
Currently, all I have in mind is to keep static files, i.e., scripts, 
initramfs, configuration files in the repository, so that we can be sure 
that all cd's built will be configured in the same way.

I'll be continuing to add to the repo as time goes on, but feel free to 
comment or offer suggestions at any point.
