I've offered to do the text on the sleeves explaining the process of
how to choose your preferred desktop environment, but that depends on
have a technical decision made regarding the boot menu.

I've already talked to Dennis regarding this.  He's taken a first stab
at the script in the multiboot-media-creator, doesn't anticipate any
problems with it, but will be doing additional testing from Australia
as soon as possible.

We've already talked to Adam about this -- it shouldn't be much of a
concern, as we're using existing ISOs that have already had their QA
work done.  The final piece that needs to be tested is the boot menu

Is this really a requirement?  Isn't it enough to say "We used these
five ISOs from Fedora, and this script to generate the DVD ISO"?  To
be honest, this just sounds like busy work to me.
