In-Vehicle Infotainment remix

Registered by Pat McGowan on 2011-04-25

Is there any community interest around creating a seed and/or derivative of Ubuntu for in-vehicle infotainment systems. Discuss the general requirements of such a remix.

What is the maximum disk footprint target?
Are any changes need to the packaging or tools to allow for smaller images, or more flexible dependencies?
Select a package set including the default UI toolkit
What IVI specific packages are required that are not yet in Ubuntu's repositories?
Select a set of default applications.
Discuss a sample UI based on Unity. Should this be provided as an option or by default?
Discuss the applicability of UbuntuOne.
What hardware reference platforms are best suited?
