I'm happy to make an unofficial CD for you, if your not confident doing it
yourself -- we can treat it as the beta for 2.0 r1, and depending upon whether
the 2.0 r1 release happens in time for the magazine, you can use the beta ot
the real release.

I think we should try to do it this week.
Has anyone been collecting a list of required updates ?
Of the top of my head, there is:
fixed cd_autoup.sh, and the READMEs that go with it
someone wanted a package removed that should be in non-free (I forget the
I guess putting the latest debian-cd on the CD might be nice, but not very
I presume there are a load of packages in stable-updates that should go into
the next release
I hope we are going to do this in a way that means that the 2.0 tree is also
available after 2.0 r1 is released --- Is that true ?

I will not be making cdimage.debian.org open for everybody, and am attempting
to discourage more than one mirror per continent grabbing things from there
(in the firsat wave at least)
Any other approach just means that nobody gets a copy of the images for days
after the release.
I am willing to make exceptions where the mirrors are out of date, and people
need a copy of the images for things like magazine deadlines, but this is
generally a fairly small window, since the mirrors can update in a few
hours if the machine isn't swamped by the public.
