Why keep it as a to do item?
Mairin's kickstart file came in at 1.1 gb,
I would prefer to see it come it at cd size 650-700mb.

I'd say leave d\t alone, and go all out for our own spin.
Personally will be putting a new test machine over the summer maybe in
line for F10. Maybe make 10 not 9 an achievable goal, 
with as many members as possible testing the apps that M has in the
kick-start file, then cull to make a live-cd.
(that could\can be made upgradable?)

Take the bull by the horns, as with XFCE spin.
