This is simply y.a. method for the image to find its way to your server

thought, at this point, that the emphasis is on making it available to
you, Drew, sooner than later.  If it matters how you get your image,
ignore the suggestion.
Faster than FTP?  120KB/sec FTP is the fastest uploading I have access to.

I am use to dealing with FTP. The LibreOffice people have their system set up to deal with downloading the ISO file directly, via torrent, and such. I do not know anything about torrent, but they will be doing the work for me, I hope, for that way to distribute the ISO file. Not everyone has broadband access for downloading a DVD file. Torrent is the choice for many. That way, we can have the ISO file hosted in several places, and several ways for downloading, then hopefully, there will be several ways for people to get a printed copy of the DVD as well.

So in a few days, hopefully by the weekend, the ISO file will be on Drew's system. A few weeks after that it may be on the LibreOffice system. As soon after that as we can get the DVD "locked", I would like to have it available for pre-made discs for those who need one. Maybe it will be all ready before the events. I know the ISOs will be ready long before that.

Hi Craig,

Right - thanks and sorry for being quick there. It needs to get to a few
others also.

I'm getting antsy again - Jeff is going to be at a Open Source business
fair in Arizona on April 2nd, Italo is going to be at Flouris 2011 in
Chicago on the same date.

This disc is getting close, but it really needs some distributed work
now to get the last bits properly finished.

BTW - put our latest working copies of art work up for review:

The DVD case (variant of the LiboBox cover) and label as png files are
on the wiki -

There is still some for the DVD case I think and then is nothing so far
for an insert - anyone wanting to offer to work on that, it would be
greatly appreciated.
