I have checked both sourceforge.net/projects/partedmagic and
partedmagic.com and neither mention Clonezilla.

I was uncomfortable calling it a distribution; pseudo-distribution
might be more accurate since, AFAIK (never used it),  it is basically
used as a live cd, like parted magic, knoppix, sysrescuecd, etc.
