AFAIK (but I know little) an ISO image is just a flux of data for the CD
ie it doesn't matter if it is music, an ISO9660 filesystem or one of the
formats from Sun or others.   If I did something wrong at masterisation
then it will
surface when you mount the CD but not at this stage.

For now few pages: a front one, a download page, a status page (the
state of Indy),
a general developers page, one specific for programmers and Linux
experts, another one
for non experts suggesting them useful actions.  Plus the form for
subscribing to the list
and/or participating.  The present form we have is quite obsolete: it
does not subscribe
people who want to participate and I suspect many people fill it
believing it is just for
subscribing to the mail list when it is for participating.   New form
should have one button
for subscribing to the mail list (we only need to know the person's
e-mail) and one for people
interested in taking action: here we need some more data in addition to
the e-mail.  In the 
later case person is automatically subscribed to the list and data is
sent to the person
filtering the appliants (myself for now).

Also we have to try to be fast: at this stage is better to have an
updated site than one
where every link is correct.  The front page is the worse problem since
I have difficulties
in writing an effective text on Indy's ideals.
