What do you want to achieve with talking to CD vendors?  They'll need
at least half a year between updates so that they can produce cheap
and sell their sets.  This collides with the Debian goal to let
updates flow into the stable releases after a not too long time.  You
can't achieve both goals.

When you talk to CD vendors, please don't emphasize on r* at all.
These should merely small updates and not a reason to restart
producing CDs/DVDs again.  Only when the vendor needs to produce a new
disk set they should use the most recent images from Debian.

Finally...  That would be great.



GNU does not eliminate all the world's problems, only some of them.
