Lubbock aims to be a highly customized secure pocketsized Linux distro.
Lubbock is based on Linuxcare's BBC, and is meant to run entirely off the CD (or mostly).

Plans include customized images, new software, and much much more.
As the website says:

Lubbock is meant to be for CD-ROM drives what Tom's Root Boot (and other floppy-based distributions) are for floppy drives:

A means of booting a useful, self-contained and portable Linux system from removeable media.

Of course, those who contribute to the project get to define what "useful" means! ;-) but extensions might include:
Support for architectures other than x86.
Configurability for different uses (security, demonstration, rescue, everyday use).
Configurability for different form-factors (mini CD, full size CD, zipdisk, ls-120, ???).

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
