It is the KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop packages on 11.2 with all online updates
applied, and all the branding swapped out to upstream defaults. Note that
this is only a visual change. The functional patches, such as they are,
are still present.

PS Who wants to help maintain it now? Most of the time it requires only
patience and attention to detail, over programming or packaging skills. I
am stronger in the latter categories, as my wife can attest.

Just a few comments for a future release:
- virtualbox-ose-kmp-default AFAIK doesn't make sense without VirtualBox
installed (the usable stuff for being a VBox client OS is AFAIK in the Xorg
package).

- "kde4-webkitpart" is the old one. It has been renamed to kwebkitpart (that
it even made it onto the live CD could be related to bug
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=578918 )

- A audio CD player (KsCD) really makes no sense on a live CD, because the
drive is occupied by the live CD and only very few people have more than one
drive.

- VIM doesn't really make sense to be shipped by default in any distro. Nano
is available as fall-back console editor and whoever wants VIM can install it.

- Space freed by leaving VIM out could be used by KDE apps that are currently
in Playground or Review (eg. Rekonq or Kahjong)
