Hi Nik,

Although it isn't exactly the same approach, our LoCo Team has started
work on a project to package (and repackage) Ubuntu CDs for
distribution to libraries:

Our plan was to have a decently completed product before widely
announcing it to other LoCo Teams and the whole Ubuntu community.
Progress has been a bit slow so far (my fault,) so we'd be thrilled to
have some additional input.

If anybody on the Artwork Team who knows where we can get hi-res
source files for the official Ubuntu 6.06 wallets, please let us know!
