I'm in the process of rebasing the kickstart against the latest livecd
base, and I will be pushing it through the New Spin Process soon.

More tools?  Yes.  I want it to ship with every security tool in Fedora.
If you know of any that are missing from the list, please let me know.

More bare bones?  The current livecd is based off of the minimal
kickstart configuration, and uses openbox as opposed to GNOME.  If you
have any suggestions for making it more "bare bones", let me know.
