.metalink support for .iso

Registered by Shirish Agarwal on 2007-04-19

  Officially support .metalink format also for downloading .iso packages. Give links of the same on the most often .iso packages like ubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu & edubuntu etc.

Couple of other proposals for the same :-

a) https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/metalink-iso-downloads
b) https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/metalink

Whiteboard

Progress has been made on this, see https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/metalink-iso-downloads and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-cdimage/+bug/140458/

Official .metalinks are at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ and other places. These are used by Wubi, but not seen from the main download page.
