JTE is nearing completion, I think. I've added support for checking MD5 sums during mkisofs runs, to remove the need for the very time-consuming mirror-check step.
I've branched debian-cd in CVS to add support for JTE. I considered
making the changes optional by config, but the existing Makefile in
debian-cd was already getting way too complex and
brittle. Hopefully I'll be able to merge some of these changes in soon
once I can convince more people to test them. Check out the
Phil Hands helped me test the iso-image.pl script from JTE 1.5, and started working on packaging JTE. Hopefully if I prod him I'll even be abe to get him to write the docs for me too... *grin* In the long term, I'm hoping to get the JTE patch accepted by the Debian mkisofs maintainer. Failing that, I'll end up maintaining a forked version of mkisofs. I'd obviously like to avoid that if I can.
