Jigdo doesn't work with live CDs as they are just one file afaik. I
would also expect it to have problems with daily snapshots in general as
old versions of files are deleted from the archive meaning that I'd
expect you'd get incomplete images. Jigdo can have this problem with our
packages anyway as the images are not updated when a package is replaced
by eg a security update. I have some ancient bugs opened about it

You can fix with rsync but it's not very user friendly.
