Well, I meant I didn't have another Pi with a display and keyboard to run the build process on.

While I appreciate your replay, you need to understand what FOSS and Open Source is all about. As someone who has used open source for about 10 years or more, there is absolutely nothing in the license agreement that stops an ISO being provided. Don't believe me?

Go download Ubuntu or Linux Mint. They've been doing this for years as has every other flavour, branch or fork of the Linux OS.  

What you may not realise is that is against the Linux license agreement (or any other software that is sold under the open source header).

Being free doesn't stop anyone providing an ISO. That's simply not true!

Hi,

Correct, anyone can distribute a Linux image but this comes with burdonsome license compliance obligations and legal liability. 

One rather harsh reality is that the individual or entity that distributes the software is legally liable even if the failure is in an upstream supplier. Then there's the mechanics of actually generating the complete and corresponding sources and makefiles for everything on the distribution i.e., all of Raspbian, any added Packages or applications, Linux Kernel etc. You can't simply point to upstream code repositories because they may not continue to host the code that matches up to the binary being distributed.

So assuming you have the sources and makefiles for everything on the distribution, and you are willing to assume legal liability for it then its just a matter of being able to afford the ISP bandwidth for a potentially large number of 1GB downloads.
