sure. There are multiple mailing lists as well. They are on the site, too.

I think that as you explore you'll find that the environment is rich.

you can deploy the image. There are methods available to strip
everything out except what you want in and methods to strip out
development tools or disable them, disable morphic halos, etc. in a
nutshell: if you want to deploy an application it's fairly easy.

> What about the license?
the license is on the site. Note that it is open and freely
distributable. The license is being reviewed as well to make it more
open or to remove some items that are not open (for instance, there are
some fonts from apple included in the image.) I am not a part of the
legal issues so I can't really comment.
