Rumor has it that Jeremy Huntwork may have mentioned these words:

Ah. The way I read the chatter, is that it was pretty much a given -- I
guess I interpreted that wrong. ;-)

Diff I can do, I might be able to do what you asked in the next few days...
... However, I'm still wrapping my brain around this SVN jazz.
Things I've figured out so far:
1) livecd/x86/trunk isn't everything needed to actually *make* a LiveCD. Do
I need to checkout the livecd/x86/branches *first*, then grab the
2) Unforch, the LiveCD can't be used to actually build a LiveCD! (well, not
without a lot of consternation and gnashing of teeth...) After checking out
the /trunk, I tried running make (despite the fact that it seemed a
rather... "small" download process which makes me think not everything's
there I need) and the first thing that popped up was:
Please update your host kernel to version 188.8.131.52.
make: *** [test-host] Error 1
So I'm going to have to build something with a newer kernel than what the
LiveCD has on tap -- will a *newer* kernel work, or should I grab 184.108.40.206?

If I could get the build process functioning, I'd be happy to build the
.iso once everything's finalized...

Sheesh... first Makefiles, then SVN, now you want me to learn bugzilla
*too*? Yer a bad influence on me... ;-)
