I was confused when I first read autopsy's comment as well. Autopsy,
are you talking about partitioning when creating the liveCD/liveX image?
Or talking about paritioning when installing from liveMedia to a hard
I might add that for the latter, we want to allow the user to create
LVM / swap / crypto whatever to install to. That's why we need something
like gnome-diskutil that I mentioned in the README.fedora.
I like pilgrim's simplicity. I'm a little hesitant that

shell (Shell doesn't scale to larger projects nearly as well as python.
Although the original kadischi code had a lot of

defining derivatives. It's simple, lots of people know it and it's very
Btw, I don't expect pilgrim to grow a lot in size and complexity, it's
pretty much feature complete except for a few features.
For the record, I've written quite a bit of stuff in python but always
ended up disliking it - I guess I'm one of the types of programmers that
pick extremes. I love writing code in C and think I'm good at it. Shell
is pretty useful for stuff like pilgrim. Python always been in the
middle for me, I like to call it a "cute" language, but not really
useful for the stuff I wanted to do. It always ended up letting me down
one way or another. Of course, YMMV, I understand and see that some
people use Python in wonderful ways, more power to them. I just don't
I'll have to run pilgrim to see how kadischi and pilgrim differ

GimpNet and #freedesktop on freenode as davidz. I suppose this list if
fine to use too.
