Importand kernel images are missing in 1rst DVD disk


Importand kernel-images (like kernel-image-2.6-k7) are missing in 1rst
DVD disk of latest official Sarge DVD images, while not usefull
(outdated) kernel images take lots of place in first Debian Sarge DVD:

zilva@kriauciunai:/cdrom/pool/main/k$ du -h /cdrom/pool/main/k |grep
kernel |grep M
4,5M    /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-image-2.4.25-i386
41M     /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-image-2.4.26-i386
36M     /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-image-2.4.27-i386
46M     /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-image-2.6.7-i386
4,0M    /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-source-2.4.26
40M     /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-source-2.6.6
40M     /cdrom/pool/main/k/kernel-source-2.6.7

So, why not usefull (outdated) kernel-image or kernel-source are in 1rst
Sarge DVD disk, while latest aren't fully included (for example there
are missing kernel-image-2.6.7-1-k7 and kernel-image-2.6.7-1-586) ?

I think debian-cd scripts to include only one version (with all variants
- 686, k7, 586, etc.) of kernel-image-2.4.x and one of kernel-image

More info about kernel images in first CD are in this tread:

Btw, why 1rst Debian sarge DVD (2004-09-06) is ~90 Mb smaller, that maximum size of DVD disc ?
I think we should make 1rst Debian DVD as big as possible, because lost of people are downloading only one DVD disk.
