The canonical devs said they will help building CDs after this realease is
out, based
on what is now in universe. The current xubuntu-desktop package (1.3) should
contain
a lot more of the needed packages. What I find that is missing in xubuntu
and unfortunatley
I could not finish in time are the the following: (there are probably others
too)

1) A display manager or someother way to take the user into X. I tried wdm
today, it works, but it's not
in the deafult install rigth now.
2) Talked a lot about ivman but did not get around to integrate it with
rox-filer.
3) Printing
4) polishing (panel and menu settings, wallpaper)

Still hopefully the CDs will be somewhat usable :)

So thanks for the offer, maybe you can help in the process of selecting what
to be on the CD, as I think
there is going to be some space left besides what's in xubuntu-desktop now.

BTW for the exhaustive list of deps the CD builder uses the germinate
package (it's in the repo), and the seed descriptions.
