I do not know that much about it but I can say one thing........... This Remastersys works for most users and is so simple. I can not say that for the Remasterme that PCLinusOS users try to run.
Thank you for the kind words.
No Ubuntu isn't developing remastersys - I am but it uses all of the regular Ubuntu tools like Ubiquity and Casper to accomplish the end result. These are the same programs that are used to create the official Ubuntu iso files.
I still have some work to do to further refine the process but it is coming along. Squashfs-tools has been improved but I'm not sure if/when that will make its way into the Ubuntu repositories. The updated version allows wildcard exclusions for the compression tool which would make it easier to create a better compressed filesystem.
The current version of remastersys works well with Ubuntu 7.x and up. I believe the version of squashfs-tools used in the older versions of Ubuntu are what cause issues with the 6.x versions.
Remastersys works well as long as users don't change the settings of gdm or kdm and the basic system files and password storage method. When any of these are changed, casper, the Ubuntu livecd set of scripts, has issues and will fail.
