Otherwise, what is, for Haiku, a distro? If you can add apps and fonts and documents and still be the official build, where do youdraw the line?Agreed. The only exception *ATM* is that we don't yet have a base distro. You wouldn't even be allowed to call something "Haiku Compatible". Jorge, I think that as long as we don't have an official distro it's best to just ask if it's OK to add <apps,etc.> and still call your particular CD a "Haiku pre-alpha promo CD".
Why not add what the above demo-related statement to the distro guidelines page? It would make it all more clear to anybody who would want to create a promo CD or VMWare image to know that it is possible, but that permission is required (and who to contact in that case).
BTW, this is not for me. :) Cheers, Koki
