[tex-live] CD /DVD images (some notes)

    It does seem perverse, though, to make a 3 disk set, to have to put
    the source on all of them. 

It does, doesn't it?  But it seems to me that the demo cd is a "product"
in its own right, as far as distribution goes.  I mean, someone could
decide to only copy/redistribute that cd.

If there was only one tar file or iso image, it would be a different
story.  Or if you had to have them all in order for the software to
work, it would again be a different story.  But we are making three
clearly separated distributions.  Each can be installed and used
separately from the others.

I really think we should put the source on it.  If we don't,
complications will ensue.
