As everybody can see from the afore mentioned discussion as well as by
the answers to this announcement it is not possible to cater to each
and everybody's needs & wishes.

The solution for everybody (makers and users) would be a "Joe
User-friendly" way to roll your own, ideal would be a GUI but CLI is
also possible. Maybe a script which
 - lists all packages including dependencies (as the individual
packages selection does) so you can pack a customized live CD
 - including the system related stuff with hardware recognition and
drivers (as a normal live cd)
 - including the "installer from live system to harddisk"
 - at the end of the package selection hands out the size of the ISO

And at the end it wraps up everything resulting in a customized Mageia live cd.

This way Mageia would only have to distribute even less ISOs than
currently planned (saving QA time) and everybody can roll his/her own
flavor, depending on the purpose (showing and hand-out at events, in
your environment, for special projects, etc.)

I know that there is a way to do this already but I'm talking about a
userfriendly "interactive tool" for the not so experienced. Looking at
the work&time Mageia could save in future it may be a reasonable
