Request for interest:

I've created a bootable cdrom for DigiKam and other graphic oriented 
tools, it weight around 700 MB but can yet be shrinked (it has most of 
the sysresccd tools yet installed).

The base for the work has been the excellent gentoo based sysresccd 
http://www.sysresccd.org/ and inherit most of the goodness

If there is enough interest we (notice the plural form) could make some 
refinement and ship a photograph oriented cd, possibly updated at every 
digikam upgrade.

Does it make sense? there is already something better available?

P.S. DigiKam backend is mysql, with sqlite available ;-)
