Re: Anarchy on CD's (lot of packages on first CD depends on packages that are not in the first CD, etc)

Part of the problem is that ../tasks/tasks-woody have been sorted
diabolically (or is it alphabolically) and end up on the first two CDs in
that order.  What I am doing is to nominate the order which I want the
tasks to go onto the CDs, then build the list of packages from the list
and do _not_ sort them.  It improves the first two CDs.

However, the first two CDs are involved and there is no way round this.  I
built a CD set with only the base packages and tasks-woody and went well
into the second CD.  This means that the minimum CD purchase is two discs
for a newbie.
