a bit picky. Nowardays, there are even 800 and 900 MB CDs, but I don't
know where the reading limit is in this direction (here, the harder
thing would be to get a hand on raw CDs that you can use).
Is there a chance to make a patch for all coming versions that just
removes some package from the image to reduce it down to 650 M for
those few who can not handle the size? Don't know, it this should be a
diff patch or a heuristic algorithm (which would mean remastering
So, if there is really a relief with it, go for 700 MB please, until we
decide on the discussion where to set the split point for multi-volume
