I seem to remember this happening before, more than once.

Perhaps setting up an alias for debian-m68k@l.d.o that goes to someone
that might be interested would be a good idea.

Can we conclude from this that the m68k folks don't really care if
there's a CD set for your architecture?

If that's not the case, you should probably find someone that does
care about m68k CDs, and get them to subscribe to this list
(i.e. debian-cd).

Is there any chance of someone getting the things you are talking
about folded into the debian-cd scripts.

If debian-cd doesn't produce valid m68k-CDs, then there will be no
"Official" CDs for the m86k, or if there are, they'll appear later than
the other architectures.

Cheers, Phil.
