Well, I repeat my suggestion to include openssh ... and remember trouble setting up network (dhcpcd couldn't create a directory in /var/run).
Openssh and NFS mounts are important means to get stuff or information to the box at hand.
It can always be that we need to get some stuff before booting into the installed system.
I don't talk of ssh or NFS server, only client..
I know that the ISO is mainly about getting a chroot untarred, but minimal console live-cd capabilities (shell, ssh, IRC, web browser) are just too useful to omit, IMHO.
As long as we carry source tarballs around, ISO size is no compelling reason to omit these few MB.
Since I have no CD reader on my test box, I have to go through a hard process to make it boot on my usb key : sorry for not testing the new ISO.
But I like the inclusion of openssh (and links for instance), instead of mutt maybe : who wants to read his mail right after installing and connecting ? you have to rebuild and configure your install first ! And import your previous mail maybe.
Keep up the good work
