Hi all,

my concern is that there is no documentation for catalyst, and it would
take a lott of time for us to figure out how to use it.  Also, I
disagree with having separate isos for us.  I feel that the default isos
for gentoo should be accessible.  Since releng is making cds, I want to
try to work with them first to get accessibility on those cds to happen.

Also, making the packages work correctly is not just a matter of adding
them to the cd, we have to make the boot scripts recognize that we want
speech.  I have given releng a patch to do this, see this bug:

Also, there is support on the development mailing list for getting this
put on the cds, so I want to work with them first before I attempt to
figure out another means of making the distribution accessible.
