Re: Debian v.9.2.1 DVDs - how long are they good for?

Hi Thomas,
I do not agree with you. As far as I know (as my last creation was a long time 
ago), you can mount the dvd in jigdo, and then you will only need to download 
newer packages not existing on the dvd. All package versions, which are on the 
dvd will be downloaded from the dvd and not from the repo. 

Please correct me if I am wrong. 

So you save bandwith. 

Happy hacking!
