Edubuntu on two CDs

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2006-10-23

Edubuntu had space problems since the beginning, we should start doing two CD releases to fix that and have enough time at the summit to discuss the best method to implement such a scenario.

2006-11-02 sladen: enforcing a requirement to have two CDs seems irriating. It'd be like going back to the days of installing Debian from 42 floppy disks, only to find out that disk number 37 is corrupt and you need to start again. Could the second CD be done as a "Bonus CD", containing a fairly standard apt archive on the second disk?

2007-02-06 kamion: gnome-app-install data files added to current daily CD builds.
2007-02-06 mvo: support in update-notifier, python-apt and gnome-app-install added and uploaded
