I think the ideal solution would be tho have a separate Etoile and GNUstep cd, so to be able to show-off a "clean" gnustep. Actually I think (also my reading Quentin's answer) that eotile adds to the gnustep base so that it should be abel to do one main work and then etoile can add to the base. THis would save efforts.

Using just debian usntable has a big disadvantage: it ties us quite a bit to their packages and it is not possible easily for us to include more up to date packages or, for example, even add unreleased sutff just for demo and show-off purposes.

Basing on debian for example, wil inhibit building of simplewebkit and Vespucci, SWK browser... which should be really demonstrated.

The same goes for some unreleased stuff or ProjectCenter, where we need the latest SVN version to build against current make and also to build several projects, 0.4.3 can't cope with that..

If you guys want, that's one of he reasons why I create those Slackware packages.  I have both stable and unstable branches in here.  The unstable is only the libraries, nothing else, so will allow you to build whatever you want on it.  Even though Slackware is probably not the easiest distro to work with for this situation, it might be easier than other options (such as building everything yourself).  Using the SLAX scripts (I think they're called linux-live) it would be easy to create a live CD too.

Just throwing that out there.  I can try helping with the live CD, but I'm not sure I'll have time since I just accepted a job which requires me to move to a different state by the end of Feb and I'll be running around quite a bit.
