That would be nice :-)

I'm planning on doing something similar. We (Debian-SP, a group of
Debian users from São Paulo/Brazil, part of the [1]Debian-BR Project)
promoted a very nice Debian Install Fest two weeks ago and we are
planning on doing something similar but with Woody for beginners users
in mind.

However, I'm worried with the idea of creating a local Debian mirror as
I don't have hardware enough to handle the amount of packages. I think
that using a local mirror is the only way to achieve some degree of
stability with the installer as packages are being changed everyday and
burning a *installer only* CD with PGI to use an official Debian mirror
as the source to fetch packages from is likely to give you too much

How did you managed to fix the *packages changing too often* problem ?
Are you using your own local mirror ?
