Understanding how the ubuntu / xubuntu ISO is created

Hi Josh,

 Our of curiosity, what kind of changes are you looking to make? Do you feel
any of them would benefit from being in the official repositories?

 As for your question, are you asking for a build system that will rebuild
the CD's every time you upload a new package? That seems like overkill to
me. Would you be able to clarify your requirements? Do you really need to
build your own CDs or could everyone benefit from you simply contributing to
the Xubuntu project?
