Just a technical issue: we should not distribute the actual image but the
scripts to procude these images featuring "mkisofs". And we could
already do this independently of the other plans - today.
Such a script should check the integrity of the archive from which the
CD is built and the "distributions" to be included (hey, there is still no
better term!). The rest is a matter of disk-space.
Producing a Debian CD seems a common problem for several users and I have
been asked several times about this. If our goal is to spread Debian
around the globe, it may be a good idea to make production of "own" CDs
