  Description     : GUI to clone and manage Live-Build USB sticks

 The main use case for `live-clone` should be for people who
 use a USB live stick to boot a GNU-Linux system anywhere, on
 whatever machine which allows them to boot from such a support.

 It can be summarized as "nomadic IT usage". I use it as a valuable
 educational tool for my students: so, they can find exactly the
 same computer environment at school and for their homework,
 provided they know how to boot a machine with their own
 Debian-Live flash disk.

 This application allows one to make bootable USB sticks from an
 iso-hybrid image issued by Live-Build. It adapts additionally a
 persistence partition to use the free space on the USB stick.
 It features also management tools for live USB sticks: when such
 USB disks are used daily, they happen to have inconsistencies in their
 persistence area which can render them unusable. Tools are provided to
 save persistence data when necessary, and to blank the persistence area,
 so the USB disk can be used again.
 The application detects when it is run from a Debian-Live environment,
 thus featuring seamless auto-cloning.

The package is currently stored at
and I aim to maintain it in the next years.
