OK, you know what I'll say to this, I like it!

Remembering that we are trying to keep the amount of data down for 
dial-up connections:

Re: Mageia One: I think the idea behind the iso's was to try to divide 
earth into 6 "language" areas in the hopes of supplying an iso that was 
specifically tragetted to each specific areas. If we were to offer only 
1 basic iso how much more data would a user have to potentially need to 
download and would this add a considerable time to her/his download time?

As the original thread spoke of supplying a member with a Mageia disc 
from a local Community, would the Community be able to provide a copy of 
the Mageia One disc along with the translation required by the user? 
Would this be possible?

Re: the main Mageia ISO: a "Mageia Update Pack" would be great. I 
wonder, why would Mageia not offer this by default for download? Is 
there a reason for this?

As the original thread was about supplying users with a copy of a Mageia 
disk, the local Community could then supply the user with a copy of the 
"Mageia Update Pack" disc.
