Public bug reported:
I am in a peculiar situation where I need to burn source code images
onto DVDs. I downloaded the following images below;
and tried to use Brasero with re-writable DVDs that are 4.7GB. The issue
is that the source code images are too large for DVDs. This affects
/ubuntu-14.04-src-1.iso and /ubuntu-14.04-src-2.iso which are 4.8GB
instead of the reported sizes in Index of /releases/trusty/source which
states that they are 4.5GB.
For /ubuntu-14.04-src-3.iso in Index of /releases/trusty/source the
stated size is 4.2GB but once downloaded it is 4.5GB which is not that
much of an issue as it will fit on a DVD. I wanted to let you know as
other individuals may come across this issue.
