hmm. i assume you'll be changing the names ?  i.e the hard links
will be called binary-i386-1-NONUS.iso instead of the .raw stuff
that's there now ?

i do.. but i don't mirror the entire cdimage.debian.org area.. since once
images are produced they hardly change.. and if they are updated/changed
i'd hope (and you seem to..) to get an email about changes.

aye.. i'm actually using my 2.2 r0 images to `seed' mirroring the 2.2r2
images.  i don't intend to keep the 2.2 r0 images.. does anyone ? and
i plan to just replace them all.

i'm assuming this is going to get rid of the 2.2_rev0 / 2.2 / 2.2_rev0CDA
business that was going on.. and all the architectures will now just be
released as 2.2r2.

aye.. i saw that.

when will you consider the images all `release' ?
