Hi Laurent,

This is wonderful news, this is a feature request that we get on a regular
basis from our users but the dev team is not experienced in the creation of
LiveDVDs.  It'd be great if this effort could be moved into the Ubuntu
Studio development process so that future releases have live capabilities.
I'm CCing the dev list on this and I hope that the discussion continues
there.  Please consider joining that list to facilitate the discussion
