Between June 11 and Linuxtag I'll probably have a lot of time. But, I
guess that most of the CD should be ready before that. My assumption
would be that we would take testing as a base since stable woody is
rather unlikely (at least in my opinion). I would volunteer if nobody
else wants to, to coordinate the efforts, maybe collect package requests
as last year (create consistant package lists with resolved
dependencies, etc), but I would be glad if somebody else would volunteer
to master the CD since I don't have the time and facilities at the moment.
Maybe Torsten, or Michael would be interested... (/me looks at bluehorn
and grisu...) Frank did a very good job with the labels last year. Would
you be able/willing to do that again? Maybe, everybody willing to help
should send me a note, so that we can see if we have enough volunteers.

Wow! KDE this time, too... :)

That would be neat. But do we have all the coordinates of the machines?
We would probably be able to get those of official machines/mirrors
(http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi), but what about all the mirrors not
listed there?

I also think that not all people that used to be subscribed to
-events-eu are subscribed here. Maybe somebody should remind them again?
