    Be aware, that creating a new distribution is a lot of work, especially the maintenance.
    This is a good starting point:

    If you want to create a fork, then the basics are done.
    But you will then need a way to sync with the upstream distribution.

    Your idea seems a bit vague to me.
    Maybe going through a linuxfromscratch install once provides a basis for you.
    Then you can better judge, if an own distribution is the right project.

    Have a look into remastersys, it may be a good starting point for you.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    A fork (besides the obvious, being a utility you eat with; that has 3 prongs on the end and is often made of metal) is the split of 1 distro into 2 seperate distro's that are based of the same source & foundations but end up having different long term & short term objectives i.e. desktop, workstation, server etc... a good example is NetBSD and OpenBSD.

    Install a distro, set it up just how you want and make an installable live CD from it using remastersys.

    Sorry, just couldn't help myself
