If both live cd tools and pungi can take kickstart files as input then has any thought been given on the possibility of merging them. At this point they look too similar to be separate tools to me and maybe you can share more code that way too.

The guts of what they do are really quite different.  In a lot of ways,
livecd-creator is really more similar to anaconda than to pungi.
But the fact that all three (pungi, livecd-creator and anaconda) use
kickstart configs is very very intentional.  The idea is that there is
one common config that can be used to describe an image regardless of
whether you deploy it by having a traditional tree + installing from it,
a live image, etc.  But that discussion is getting a bit off-topic for
here.  Reply-to: set accordingly


This seems reasonable. So issues that come up from one to the other would be a bug with the tools and not so much with the spin if I understand the process correctly?
