I'm currently in France, so time for setting this up is limited.

I'd appreciate it if you remind me to send you a password if I don't
do so within a couple of weeks.  You don't need a password at present,
but if bandwidth becomes saturated next time we do a CD release, I'll
switch on the password check, and I want mirrors to still have access.

Please mention this to the debian-cd@lists.debian.org list, so it will
get on the mirrors list.

Great --- sorry I 've not got time to do much about it, but ifyou mail
the list I'me sure Anne will sort out the details.

Cheers, Phil.
