Task description

We produce CDs and DVDs to help people install Debian. That means that we need to work regularly with other teams to make things work:

Then the work splits into two parts:

  • Developing the debian-cd software itself
  • Using that software regularly to generate and publish CD and DVD images, both daily/weekly for testing images and straight after each release for official stable images

Get involved

  • {*} Help test our images - download, test installations and report bugs

  • {*}{*} Look at the debian-cd bug list and see if you can help fix things

  • {*}{*}{*} mkisofs / genisoimage problems (especially on hfs hybrid images)

More stuff
