Why create our own live system?
Debian is the Universal Operating System: IMHO we should have an official live system for showing arround and to officially represent the true, one and only Debian system with the following main advantages:
It's an official Debian subproject.
It reflects the (current) state of one distribution.
It runs on as much architectures as possible.
It consists of unchanged Debian packages only.
It does not contain any unofficial package.
It uses an unaltered Debian kernel-image with no additional patches (except from live system specific ones which maybe required).
I add my two cents: to prevent and reduce fragmentation, to have one, solid cvs tree, because 1000's of good developers can do better than a dozen skilled programmers.
However, my original question was; will DSL play a role?
For the lack of answers from the core developers and the recent mood on this forum, my impression is that the aswer is negative.
If there was an official Debian livecd, I'd probably invest my time in it, rather than a derivative.
