Terje, as Eberhard said: Our mirrors cannot server both. It's also
double the bandwith to sync out from us to them in a short time.

Therefore we only make one set available - and CDs are easier to sync
since DVDs are larger than 2 GB which will cause problems for some
mirrors. Just with Alpha5 the CDs did not install at all, so we have
this time DVDs only instead,
