This is a bit risky. Because of the technique used for the label
printing ("Siebdruckverfahren"), I was advised not to use too thin lines or
too small text. If I write down the entire text block as seen above, I'll
have to use a smaller font, which might render illegible - and we won't
be able to find that out until the CDs are produced. Of course, the current
text is rather large, and I can easily replace it with a smaller font, but
in bold printing (so the stems don't come out too thin).

What I need now is:
- One or two more opinions on what to do - leave the current text or put in
  something like what Peter suggests;
- information whether the paths Peter gave me above ("/install/doc/de" etc)
  are correct. Especially: What will be the final name of the binary Eduard

Ok, I'll remove it. It was just an idea for a graphic element because the
whole label appeared so text-loaded to me.
