We do not add individual packages to CDs. Instead we list the tasks that should be added. Hmm. I see that malayalam tasks are currently not listed in the tasks.list file for debian-cd . They'd need to be added there. Christian: 1) Could you check whether there are other l10n tasks missing (and propose a patch for debian-cd)? 2) Currently the order of languages seems to be alphabetical, which means languages with "high" letters will have a higher chance of being pushed off the 1st/2nd/3rd CD or off the 1st DVD. Should we maybe use a a somewhat more intelligent grouping of languages so that at least similar/related languages can be expected to be supported by the same images? > But then it should get it from the mirror, right? Yes. _If_ you selected to also use a mirror during installation, I would expect that to happen. Unless there is some kind of problem with the language (locale) test in tasksel that selects the l10n tasks for Malayalam. http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/debian-cd/trunk/tasks/task.list?op=file&rev=0&sc=0
