OK, that'd be cute. Although I'm also worred about the potential
breakage on the CDs if the release notes get any bigger. We had a
last-minute nightmare trying to make things fit on release day on the
KDE CDs, and I don't want to have to repeat the experience. :-/

In future, it would be nice to maybe re-think what we put on which
CDs. Some people have suggested having a separate CD for docs, which
I'll admit I'm not such a fan of for a variety of reasons. I'm tempted
to suggest that we might only put the HTML versions of the
installation guide and release notes on the CDs (omitting the PDFs),
but put all the versions on DVD. Or something; what do you think? This
might be a useful route for the squeeze point releases.

On a wider note: we're also rapidly getting to the point where a
single CD is just *not* big enough to contain all the bits for a
sensible Gnome/KDE desktop. I don't think we can usefully continue
with single-CD installs for them. :-/ Maybe that's the answer,
