Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.5
Severity: wishlist


as discussed on #debian-cd, now that iso images are hybrid and
installing via usb seems quite common, it'd be nice to have iso images
for usb thumb drives.

For example the first CD is around 650M which fits well on a CD but
not an a 512M thumb drive and means you lose some place on a 1G one.
Same goes for the first DVD which won't fit on a 4G drive and will lose
quite some space on a 8G one (it seems there are 5G drive but it doesn't
seem that frequent).

I guess it might make sense to have images for 1G and 4G size. It'd be
nice to have multi-arch stuff too, for example i386/amd64 CD1 (which might fit on 1G), multi-arch DVD1 (which might fit on 8G).

Anyway you see the point, and I know adding more and more images aren't
viable (not sure if there are current one which can be dropped too).

   [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
   * Add the missing accent in my family name in Uploaders.
   * Drop Frans Pop from Uploaders, RIP.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Start wheezy development, doing "svn cp squeeze wheezy" and
     "s/squeeze/wheezy/" in various places.
   * Add support for over-riding disc size on demand, used for some of the
     squeeze release builds.
   * Add disk size definitions for 1/2/4/8 GB USB sticks.
   * Extend the size-override code to allow to override an individual disc
     in the set (e.g. to make the first DVD fit on a 4GB USB
     stick). Closes: #612074
   * Special-case builds of source-only discs: if we think we've
     overflowed the disc size, try to carry on for a few more packages
     to get closer to actually filling the disc. Closes: #613751.
   * Path to sparc daily builds has changed.
   * armel hasn't booted off CD in ages for us; comment out the DI_WWW_HOME
     definition to stop the mirror script complaining.
   * Add more checksum types to generated Release files; go from md5 only
     to md5, sha1, sha256 and sha512.
