Bug#570770: Debian Edu squeeze images

package: cdimage.debian.org
severity: wishlist

as discussed several times already we would like to build Debian Edu images 
with the same tools on the same box as the regular Debian images are build, 
and to make them available just like all the others.

Debian Edu is currently available for i386, amd64 and powerpc, for our Lenny 
release we released three images: a double-layer source DVD (5.3GiB or so), a 
regular DVD for amd64+i386 and a combined netinst-cd type for 

For Squeeze doing roughly the same seems sensible, though maybe an additional 
sid CD image would be nice.

For setting it up and debugging problems, Ronny Aasen and me would like to get 
access to the machine to do the dirty work. Currently our build setup is 
managed in svn and we use a patched version of debian-cd. Obviously our goal 
is to get rid of the patches ;-) What VCS are you using, are you using 
one? ;) Do you have documentation? We have 
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/MagicCDBuild and our stuff is in 

Ronny is a long time Debian Edu contributor, developer, CD build master and 
ftp archive maintainer. He's sadly neither a DD nor DM (he claims it's 
because of this internet-meme called "RL" that he has no time for that..), 
his GPG key id is 0xEC91AE3A. (I would have sworn I've signed his key.)

Assuming you like the idea, how to we proceed from here?
