I think what's needed (as Guy mentioned a few messages ago) is something
along the lines of a README that classifies what's considered official in
terms of a CD and what's not. I should also (when mailing out release
announcements) send something to the list of CD vendors directly telling
them where to get the images from and what needs to be done in order to call
I'll cross post this to -publicity, and we can discuss what should be
contained in such a README and in an announcement to vendors. I'll also add
that to the (soon to be on the Debian web site) publicity pages.
If anyone has ideas as to what should be in these documents, please send
them to me or to -publicity. I've set reply-to: to debian-publicity.
