If OLPC is a "derived" from Redhat or Fedora Core distribution, I really do not see how this pertains to this list.
I think Rahul answered this already. I'll also note that this is not a
kadishchi specific list (or at least that's my impression) and several
people have asked me to specifically post my work here.
Yes.  In fact, I hounded David relentlessly for a couple of weeks to
publicize his work here, because I think it's excellent.

It's natural to be skeptical of new code, but bear these facts in mind:

1. PRIORITY.
Kadischi is heavily reliant upon Anaconda.  Anaconda's functionally is a
large superset of Kadischi's.  Anaconda also has significant *business*
pressures on its roadmap.  Kadischi patches are, therefore, low priority
for Anaconda developers.

Pilgrim, on the other hand, performs *extremely* similar tasks for OLPC. OLPC must be imaged very simply, and very uniformly. A Live CD/Live DVD is the same.

2. INSTALL FUNCTIONALITY.

If there's one place where Ubuntu has an *actual* lead on us, it's in their ability to install a Live CD directly to a system. From what I've seen, we're closer to closing that gap with Pilgrim than we are with Kadischi.

Interesting question; does Ubuntu's LiveCD allow a user to upgrade a
currently hard-disk-installed Ubuntu to the Ubuntu version that's booted
from the LiveCD, like you would do a clean install?  Or do they punt
that functionality?

Dan

They punt it currently.
