IMHO, definitely - it's been a very long time since I last saw 650
MB media...

It is less then a year ago since debian-edu tried to switch from 650
to 700 MB images, and got reports about CD burners unable to burn the
images.  Because of this, debian-edu still make 650 MB images.

With Steve's whizzy new patch for generating jigdos straight from mkisofs, it all runs fast enough so that we could contemplate generating jigdos for both sizes, as well as business cards & DVDs, say. It's not like extra jigdo versions take up much room.

If we do that, CD vendors and home CD burners can chose a size that suits their hardware.

Cheers, Phil.
