Why would you want to branch off and make your own when having knowledgeable people and a good support community is so valuable? Give it time. I'm sure that it's still a consideration since they did experiment by releasing an alpha months ago.

I tried to engage a NEW Community Edition. This means that this edition is from the community, not from clem and the existing dev team. So there is no reason to wait for the existing team. They really have enough work to do with their editions. This is why I wanted to engage a new team that likes to try this challenge. Maybe I was a bit to enthusiastic. Don't worry, that will not happen any more...
I won't longer try to support this project, I'll cook my own soup and experiment with all the possible choices. If someone wants to have feedback of the technical advances, you can reach me by pm.
means for me: I try alone and have a look what is possible.I'll cook my own soup

I tried to make it smaller, but I guess I'll just see how much I can fit in 700MB now since it'll be big anyway.
Debian can play MP3s by default, and I will probably put Flash on it too, but the other codecs probably won't be of much use running from a CD.
P.S. Thanks for the tip on gconf. I will try that out tomorrow.
