Right. I am just started to get used to the openSUSE build server last
year. But I intend to move important or needed doc packages to our
internal Autobuild for being included in our release (if it's
possible.) Do you have some special documentation that you want to
see as RPM package on DVD (apart from GIMP)?
(Keep in mind there is limited space on a DVD.)

Isn't it appr. 9GB because it's a double layer DVD?
