I cant find this, where is it?

Many times we have already discussed the replacing of CDs image by DVDs, but ppl all over the world still dont have enough bw to download DVDs, even if media is at the same price. Also server loads would increase to numbers way bigger than any mirror admin would enjoy.

I guess we need a middle-of-the-road solution. A post-install hook to download the rest, combined with larger images but still not 4GiBs.
