Hello there,
A few days ago, I mentioned[1] there is no one behind kadischi's
development team and it will be EOL'ed this saturday.

So today is Saturday 07 July 2007 (in a few minutes it will be 08 July
2007), kadischi's bug review[2] was marked and closed as NOTABUG,
while the remaining 4 open bugs under kadischi's name :
# A first experience ( #222568 )
# Kadischi does not build on VMware hosted OS ( #216151 )
# Kadischi may raise an exception when attempting to copy device
files. ( #211692 )
# Processed: Kadischi build fails if dietlibc is installed ( #167220 )
were closed as WONTFIX.

Therefore, I'm announcing the official EOF of Kadischi. It is sad, but
it is _not_ the end of creation of custom spins at the Fedora Project
since Jeroen van Meeuwen and his friends are actively maintaining
revisor[3]. If you were a kadischi user in the past, you will probably
see revisor as a better alternative.

# I'll like to thank everyone who participated in the kadischi
project: whether by contributing codes
# or by testing, translations, documentation,...
We will still be looking forward to see your contributions at the new
revisor project.

The Fedora Livecd Mailing list[4] is still active and you can still
asked your livecd related questions there. However I don't know what
will be the state of the #fedora-livecd irc channel on freenode. The
average number of people who joined this channel daily is 5 and
there's pretty much no discussions. Well, #fedora-devel is always
