    Hi Roland,

    As promised I am going active regarding LinuxTag ;-) You might not
    like my comments though.

    I think we still did not vote on this. There will always be new discussions
    what gets on the discs. But we need agreement here - so: Can everybody
    agree to us using woody (in particular I would like to know the opinion
    of the Knoppix CD team, since I don't know if they have any problems
    with testing)?

    *arg* I just checked on pandora and it seems that machine does not have
    a full mirror but hosts only the non-US stuff. I thought main was
    mirrored there but that does not seem to be the case :(

    Now I don't think it is a big problem to copy the data once. But in case
    we want to master the CD there we will run into problems. Basically we
    have three options:

    - create a local mirror for just our purpose
    - download the packages from the next mirror each time we create the
    - update the directory with the cd stuff each time the mirror gets
      updated (uarg!)

    Maybe I am missing something?

    Please let us discuss it some more first. It would also be helpful to do
    a brainstorming session, probably the best would be on irc. When would you
    have time? Who else would like to participate?
