Hello, I see no problem at all with Alexandre's LiveCD.
It is advertised as an unofficial PCLinuxOS spin, running a customized 
Trinity desktop.
Maybe we should make these 2 informations more visibile on the LiveCD 
download page ?

Of course, all customizations he has made are not upstream.
People can still install an official CD/DVD PCLinuxOS, then install 
Trinity from my repository instead of LiveCD.
Then they will get the default appearance and settings.

When TDE 3.5.13.2 will be out, I will put the PCLinuxOS build in the 
official mirrors.
