What about use jigdo?.

I will explain:

If I get the two Gold version r5 DVD (used in QA by SuSE) and the SHIPPED r9
DVD, then I can make jigdo files to generate the single layer r5 DVD from the
contents of r9 DVD with very few effort. One should follow the following

1) Install jigdo rpm. I built it, and I'm using it for debian iso files since
many months ago . They are in directories:

2) Mount the SHIPPED SuSE DVD iso as example in /media/dvd

3) Run the jigdo-lite script.
3a) It will download the jigdo file.
3b) Then it will ask you where you've mounted the SuSE DVD.
3c) It will download the 'template' file
4c) Finally, jigdo-lite will reuse most of the files in Shipped SuSE DVD to
build two new iso files, the DVD r5 files.

IMPORTANT: I don't know if it is legal to publish these jigdo files. Note that
it would contain only the structure of DVD and perhaps some file in DVD5
different from DVD9. It is assumed that not any rpm package will be released,
because it is supossed that the user of jigdo owns the SuSE shipped DVD.

SuSE, any sugestion?. You even could release jigdo files with the future
'FTP version'. The user the can choice to install from the net, or build
the DVD/CD from the rpm packages in mirrors.


PD. I don't have DVD5 dvds but I know they exist. ;-)
