    Between June 11 and Linuxtag I'll probably have a lot of time. But, I
    guess that most of the CD should be ready before that. My assumption
    would be that we would take testing as a base since stable woody is
    rather unlikely (at least in my opinion). I would volunteer if nobody
    else wants to, to coordinate the efforts, maybe collect package requests
    as last year (create consistant package lists with resolved
    dependencies, etc), but I would be glad if somebody else would volunteer
    to master the CD since I don't have the time and facilities at the moment.
    Maybe Torsten, or Michael would be interested... (/me looks at bluehorn
    and grisu...) Frank did a very good job with the labels last year. Would
    you be able/willing to do that again? Maybe, everybody willing to help
    should send me a note, so that we can see if we have enough volunteers.

    Wow! KDE this time, too... :)

    That would be neat. But do we have all the coordinates of the machines?
    We would probably be able to get those of official machines/mirrors
    (, but what about all the mirrors not
    listed there?

    I also think that not all people that used to be subscribed to
    -events-eu are subscribed here. Maybe somebody should remind them again?
