While that is true, it is vitally important the CDs are kept up to
date, and links to old ones removed.

We just had someone in #koha  on ircwho has just in installed from a live cd. That version is over 2 years old and has
known security issues.

I think this is what Mark was trying to say, perhaps the thread should
be, old and way out of date LiveCD should be avoided. I'm glad to see
someone is going to be maintaining them. Doing 2 LiveCD releases every
month is a reasonable amount of work so I applaud them for wanting to.
