No, I don't have any ETA for it (and the 7th of april date seems to come
out of nowhere), but we are making some progress here. 

Thanks to you dmorgan, libreoffice can now be installed without java,
and the live CD sizes appear to be fine:

598M mageia-livecd-1-beta1-GNOME-int-cdrom-i586.iso
615M mageia-livecd-1-beta1-GNOME-int-cdrom-x86_64.iso
688M mageia-livecd-1-beta1-KDE4-int-cdrom-i586.iso
704M mageia-livecd-1-beta1-KDE4-int-cdrom-x86_64.iso

Also, the theme should now be ok for GNOME live images.

Though, we still have a few issues remaining:

- KDE: missing draklive-install icon on desktop
  -> it seems that the code to handle /usr/share/mga/desktop/ in
     /usr/share/kde4/env/kde4-firstsetup.sh is commented
  dmorgan, mikala: could you have a look?

- KDE: install error about kdm not found
- check that draklive-install entries in menu contain our distro name,
  not the legacy one
