I'm sorry for cross-posting. But I thought this might be
interesting for users as well as developers. If there is a better
place to post this feature request to, do not hesitate in setting

I also second the idea of having up-to-date CD and DVD ISOs
available for download. This is very useful for installing Ubuntu
on an offline computer which will be online at some point, but
with a low bandwidth connection (ie dial-up).

It would also be useful to have current DVD-ISO snapshots of the
complete repository (universe, multiverse, restricted, etc)
available for download.

For later I have only found this:


These are obviously not up-to-date since they are distributed as

But at least I can install more software than just using the
DVD-ISO provided by the Ubuntu website.

On a side note: I couldn't find anything on the Ubuntu homepage
about ordering Ubuntu-DVD-repository-collections. Is this
possible (even if they are not up-to-date)? I will be needing to
install Ubuntu with many different programs from
multiverse/universe on a new machine while only having occasional
internet-cafe access the web.
