    Distribution of such a DVD release is more problematic.  I do have colo

    it w/ two OS's and it corrupted & paniced both after a short while).
    I hope to have it working within a month and will have at least 5 MBits
    of bandwidth to play with.  We should also consider making the DVD
    release commercially-available, e.g. have a 2-disk set (CD+DVD).
I think the space is not a problem.  The majority of downloads, being 
release or snapshot isos or pkgsrc binaries, is served anyways from 
mirrors across the world.  A DVD wouldn't hurt - we'd only need a way to 
push it to the mirrors quickly enough :)
