Thanks for hosting this.
The boot-floppies are now based on 2.2.17 - there is little (if any)
functional difference. However, it keeps the boot-floppies in step with
Debian GNU/Linux. It works well.
debian-cd has been butchered to produce an improved file system, but there
is still some way to go before I am satisfied that it is "good-enough".
However, it is usable.
I am working on the "E" series at the moment. The debian-cd scripts have
been butchered so everything will be included except packages in the
exclude list. I plan to rebuild the packages downloaded from
alpha.gnu.org into a proper local file system that can be accessed by
apt, dselect etc in the normal way. I also need to hunt down a bug that
is preventing non-US being fully incorporated into the CD - this only
applies to binary-hurd-i386 in non-US.
The CD has grown to the point that non-free has to go onto a second disc.
I would welcome comments.
