Once the 2.0.11 floppies hit the archive, I'll make what should be the final
CD beta images, which I hope will be OK to actually become the release images
(but will probably need a final rebuild on Thursday).
Things that still remain on the TODO list for the CD's:
Confirm policy on what people are allowed to distribute under the ``Official
Debian CD's'' label:
Should people be allowed to sell 3 CD sets (i.e. dropping the m68k CD) ?
What about people selling their own version of contrib, with bits of
non-free and/or non-us ?
The ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/README.CD-manufacture file needs to be
updated to reflect this.
README.official needs to contain whatever is decided as the
``Official CD'' ruling.
README.contrib should have an explanation of why some binaries are
not really GPL, despite saying they are, and (if we remove them) an
explanation for why KDE is not there.
Sentiment seems to favour their removal from hamm, so that we can sort
this out properly in time for slink, but (quite rightly) Brian is
unwilling to make changes this close to release. (I've no idea what we
should do about this)
non-free & non-us:
I've come to the conclusion, that we are not really in a position to
decide what vendors should put on these CD's, since different vendors
can satisfy different package's licence conditions, and I've not got time
to rummage through all the licences, but I don't mind creating couple of
unofficial images ``contrib+non-free'' and ``contrib+non-free+non-us''
if someone can come up with a list of what should be on them.
Alternatively, maybe we should just let the vendors use debian-cd to
create their own mixed CD's, but that might be asking for trouble, if
they get it wrong.
What have I missed ?
