The second criteria is obsolete. :) It's not a major criteria, but CD images have always seemed to me to be... kind-of second cousins compared to everything else. The pseudo-image stuff and jigdo are all kind-of unofficial and not really supported as well as they should've been, and the images themselves are produced off in the corner and a bit irregularly. Which has worked okay, but we could probably do better. > > (3) they're not for all architectures > That's true.

Which is why I'm happy to take (2) for granted. > I will make Debian CDs for all architectures when I can offer them as > downloadable ISO images. It still strikes me as much more sensible to offer ISOs for just the first couple of CDs, or just i386, and jigdo images for everything. > > You don't seem to be a developer (?). > Yes, I'm not a developer.

Right, but if we could get this fixed just by having you send in a PGP key and getting you an account on raff, that'd work too. *shrug* > > Phil? Richard?
