Bug#1036371: debian-installer: Blu-ray double-level iso is too large to burn to DLBD disk

loop += debian-cd

> Dear Maintainer,
>    * What led up to the situation?
> Since the DLBD .iso install neither sets up sources.list with a mirror to
> download from nor requests more disks to complete the set, a test of the
> DLBD install when using actual Blu-ray disks were in order.
>    * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
>      ineffective)?
> RC3, packaged at 61-62GB per volume, can not be burned into DLBD media.
>    * What was the outcome of this action?
> The test could not even be started.
>    * What outcome did you expect instead?
> The DLBD volumes should be configured at 48-48.5GB. At 61GB, apt still
> asks for new packages in /media/cdrom, which cannot possible be
> satisfied. See bug#1035476 - editing sources.list as a workaround is, as
> apt reminds each time, insecure.
> All the packages d-i needs fit in the 25GB set, if not the 16GB one.
> Then, the following volumes allow someone with a slow connection (like
> mine) to complete an installation from media - if the volumes fit on the 
> media.  Otherwise, the rest of the volumes are not easy to use as a
> complete download of the distribution.
