Which packages are missing on the DVD...
To get some idea on what packages we would like to install that are
missing on the DVD for Debian Edu/Squeeze, I wrote a small script
src/build/CD-administrator/check-what-is-missing to compare the list
of wanted packages with the list of packages included on the DVD.
Here is the list of depends and recommends from our task files that
are missing in testing at the moment.
I am glad to notice that our profiles seem to have all the packages we
want to install on the DVD, so there is not very much reason to worry,
but it would be nice if all the laptop packages were available.

# printing Depends in education-desktop-sugar
# printing Depends in education-development [ This is where the DVD is full ]
# printing Depends in education-services
# printing Recommends in education-desktop-sugar
I do not know why some of these packages are missing, but did
investigate cpqarrayd, which is missing because a RC build failure,
and kdebluetooth which seem to fail to propagate to testing for some
unknown reason (failure to build on kfreebsd?).
The CD is full just before the education-development packages should
be included, so all packages listed after this point is kept out
because there is no more room on the DVD.
If you see any obsolete packages here, please let us know so we can
drop them from the tasks.
