The CD has been rebuilt and it just needs a small fiddle to replace the
tarball.  It will be about 645 MB.  There are still a few things that
should go on, but it is a considerable improvement when compared with
previous versions.

I will be contacting the debian-cd group in a few minutes.  I suspect that
debian-cd will need to be hacked in order for it to work with the pool
system.  However, prudence suggests that it would wise to wait for the
transition to be completed.

At the moment my download rate seems to be slower than the rate of
conversion.  It seems as though sourceforge is undergoing a reorganisation
and is slow.  My ISP is also slow at the moment.
