> Hello,
> we had a talk among different people about a good model for building
> the lubuntu distribution. A sustainable model suggested by some is the
> Seed model practiced by the Xubuntu developers.
> There are solutions like Ubuntu Customization Kid
> (http://uck.sourceforge.net´;) and Reconstructor
> (http://reconstructor.aperantis.com) out there. However, they have
> some drawbacks and I am not sure how we can build a model to include
> different people in the process.
> I see the seeds model as a viable way to make lubuntu sustainable.
> There is a wiki page on the kubuntu wiki with more information:
> Seeds are the lists of packages we want to include in the
> distribution. The minimal, boot, standard, desktop, and either ship or
> live seeds go onto our CDs. Xubuntu seeds, being built on top of
> Ubuntu, inherit a shared set of seeds called the "platform" seeds.
> These platform seeds are maintained by Ubuntu Core Developers whereas
> the Xubuntu seeds are primarily taken care of by Xubuntu developers.
> Xubuntu seeds (as with all Ubuntu flavors) manage their seeds using
> the bazaar revision control system and host them on launchpad (build
> scripts pull the official seeds to build the cd).

> More information on Seed Management here

> What do you think about it?
> Best,
