Paul and I exchanged some good ideas here.  Thanks to the livecd-tools
[1] and spin-kickstarts [2] projects, the creation of Test Day live
images isn't tremendously difficult.

My apologies for not recalling the name, but a fellow tester posted a
comment in fedora planet recently suggesting this very idea ... that the
live image come with some pointers or instructions for the current test
day.  This is a great idea.

I'd like to not have to constantly edit the kickstart file used to
generate the live image.  Can folks think of a good way so that with a
little shell/python/$lang we can use the same kickstart file to produce
a live image that has ...

      * the Test Day starts as the firefox homepage
      * Or ... the firefox home page finds the most *current* test day
      * Create a .desktop file when clicked, "Join Test Day IRC
        discussion"
      * I know it's a live image, but should we enable kexec/kdump to
        easily capture kernel panics?

What do folks think?

Thanks,
James
