Thanks a lot for your reply. You're right , I was not connected when I 
first rebooted. I thought about it, and I first thought it could have 
been something missed because nowdays we are all connected but I was 
wrong  :)
I set back firstboot to rerun on reboot, but even if I was connected 
now, I got the same  invitation, so I assumed it was a decision you dev 
took related to something else.
As said before in a previous mail, I am interested in the rebuilding 
process, and even if I am not a developer or a linux guru, I would be 
very interested in contributing for what I can. Do you think you could 
give me a starting point for this?

Thanks a lot, have a nice day
