They're *almost* ready; there were 3 causes of delay:

 * r3 needed a couple more local tweaks in debian-cd

 * r3 is bigger than expected, so needed several more runs to allow me
   to fine-tune the DVD sizes in particular

 * the build machine suffered hardware failure part-way through the
   run creating netinst/business card CDs

I was hoping to be past all of those, but I've just noticed a bug in
source CD#1 that will need fixing. I expect to have all the CDs and
DVDs ready tonight (UK time).

  Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that there
  must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one on the
  far end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with a silver-handled
  knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony DeBoer
