Well a.t.m. it looks as though it would be too tight to do this in this
dev cycle so if we can proceed this way I think it will be good.

    * Ubuntu Studio gets its packages into the archives and builds its
      disk this time again.
    * Canonical hosts the disks in a manner in line with the current
      structure. ie: On http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
    * We figure out a system over this dev cycle and at the next UDS
      (Ill be at that one) that will meet the needs of everyone.

Getting the disks built/hosted by Canonical would be a great help to our
project and would help free up some of our guys to fix more bugs in the
Universe packages we use.

Also we don't want to to completely take away from the current
resources. Once a suitable process is in place for our disks joejaxx
(https://launchpad.net/~joejaxx) can manage anything needed for us on
this front. With a little info I'm sure. ;)
