Subject: DVD Releases for 2007.0
Date: Wed, 18 Oct 2006 08:32:51 -0400
As you can probably guess, I'd definitely like to continue the DVD media
for the 2007.0 release.

This is the list from the livecd-stage1 spec file for the current DVD.

What additional packages would we like to have on the LiveDVD?  I have
no problem adding things like compiz, but they will *only* be usable for
people with cards supported entirely by open source drivers.

These are the packages from livecd-stage2, which rely on kernel sources
to compile.

	=media-gfx/splashutils-1.1*
	media-gfx/splash-themes-livecd
	sys-apps/pcmciautils
	net-dialup/slmodem
	net-dialup/globespan-adsl

#	net-wireless/rtl8180
#	net-wireless/adm8211
	net-wireless/rt2500
	net-wireless/acx
	media-libs/alsa-lib
	media-libs/alsa-oss
	media-sound/alsa-utils

One thing to remember is that we *only* allow packages that are marked
stable at the time of the snapshot to be included.  This means that
suggestions made now will be added to the list, but may be commented (as
you see above) if they're not stable, or if they cause us too much
trouble during our release cycle.  I also don't plan on adding things
that aren't usable directly from the CD.  This means no ndiswrapper or
anything like it, since it doesn't function without drivers that we
cannot legally ship.  If it doesn't work "out of the box" then we're not
going to be adding it.

I plan on adding stage3 tarballs to the DVD images, which increases
their minimally.  Also, for 2006.1, we gathered all of the distfiles for
the entire release, including the LiveCD and LiveDVD images, to comply
with the GPL.  These distfiles were for *everything* on the CD/DVD
images, not just the normal stuff from the Universal CDs.  They amount
to 2.1GB.  Should we include these also?

I'd also like to open up the floor for other suggestions.  Now's your
chance to be heard if you want any say in what we might do for 2007.0's
release.

Thanks,
