[Mageia-discuss] I'd like to start to discuss the possibility of having one language per iso when it comes to full DVD-versions, similar to the Live-versions.

But here's a suggestion for Kristoffer: How about making your own?

You (or somebody else in your local community) could make a custom
made "Swedish Edition", may be also with a fixed set of drivers.
Upload it to somewhere and advertize the edition here or in a
localized Mageia page, according to your mail there are lots of
servers with enough space and bandwidth to host isos.
