I'm not sure myself; the issue with the DVD images is sheer size -
preparing the torrent files takes quite a while, and then there's only
a week until the next set are built and put into place. There's quite
a good chance that people will get failed downloads unless they have a
good download speed.

Unfortunately, we're a little too short of disk space at the moment to
be able to keep more than one set of weekly CD/DVD builds around -
that's something that would be potentially quite valuable.
