This doesn't quite look like enough to re-create ubuntu-mini-remix.
Is there any more info? https://askubuntu.com/questions/956526/how-can-i-recreate-ubuntu-mini-remix

that's what I was using back when the project was alive. it doesn't work anymore on newer ubuntu versions simply because of the lack of documentation and unmaintained software (ubuntu-defaults-image, livecd-rootfs)

Hi, @fballiano about ubuntu-defaults-image, I found this page (Bionic Beaver and there are more versions where I found it)http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man1/ubuntu-defaults-image.1.html
about livecd-rootfs I found this page https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/18.04/ubuntu-main-amd64/livecd-rootfs_2.525_amd64.deb.html
not a full doc, but the depends are listed, the files in the package are listed, the name of the packager is there with his mail adress.

I also would like very much to continue building on top of UMR. :)
@opticyclic if you are going to work on a fork, I can also be interested to follow the efforts. If you want to search the content of a package, it's a simple archive with files and 2 archives inside, you can open it with an archiver (file-roller, xarchiver... )

I'll take a look at those page and check if livecd-rootfs has been updated in the meanwhile but for sure I wouldn't fork them, I wouldn't never have time to maintain it, plus I don't want to work on something which is released without any kind of documentation and prone to undocumented extreme changes between every release.
