Package: debian-cd
Version: 3.1.5
Severity: minor

The squeeze release DVDs for source demonstrate this problem well:

$ ls -altr iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-*iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve users 4669829120 2011-02-16 22:16 iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-1.iso

-rw-r--r-- 1 steve users 3917697024 2011-02-16 22:23 iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-3.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve users 4671989760 2011-02-16 22:26 iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-4.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve users 4698984448 2011-02-16 22:30 iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-5.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 steve users  196368384 2011-02-16 22:30 iso/debian-6.0.0-source-DVD-6.iso

DVD #6 is tiny (less than 200MB), yet there's ~700MB of spare space on
DVD #3. The cause is easy to identify: the massive nexuiz-data source
package won't fit in the remaining space on DVD #3 so it triggers us
to start a new disc. That's OK-ish, but wasteful.

For binary discs, we want to keep packages in dependency order so we
*don't* shuffle things, but for source discs it really doesn't matter
at all. At the moment we're just filling them in alphabetical order
(for want of anything better), and we could do better in terms of
filling discs.

Is there anybody out there?

 debian-cd (3.1.6) unstable; urgency=low
   [ 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.
   * tools/start_new_disc: tone down messages about missing
