Currently, much of the ISO generation is done manually.  As for what is
done upto livecd-stage1, I have actually said many times how to
accomplish this.  Take every package from the published "packagecd.spec"
for x86, add them to the end of "livecd-stage1.spec" and you're done.

To use my spec files, you would need my hand-hacked copy of catalyst,
which is currently useless on anything but my machine, since it has tons
of hard-coded information (distcc hosts, paths, etc) that I have no
plans on sanitizing just to release, considering it is a modification
from catalyst 1.1.10.10, and the catalyst 1.x line has reached EOL as we
are moving all development to catalyst 2.0, which will be capable of
building a LiveCD similar to mine.  At that time, I'll release specs
designed for catalyst 2.0 for public consumption.
