            Bug ID: 256412
           Summary: 13.0-RELEASE amd64 DVD .iso is too big to burn on
                    4.7GB DVD-R
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: vince_at_vincentbentley.co.uk

I needed to create a physical boot DVD for 13.0-RELEASE as my memory stick
image for 13.0 would not boot on the old 64-bit PC I was working on. From
memory, the 13.0-RELEASE amd64 DVD image needs to lose about 100MB-200MB to fit
on a 4.7GB DVD.

This only affects those needing a 13.0-RELEASE image on physical DVD media.

The issue is similar to open bug 253483 that refers to 13-STABLE
