I already had some email exchange with Jesse about that at the time
when pungi was not yet a "component" in bugzilla.

There are up to 32 characters allowed by a standard in that space
and if you are over that limit then no images will be created.
The way pungi generates this ID it is awfully easy to make it
too long and without hacking a pungi code there is no good
way around it save using very short, and possibly weird, names.

There are two places in the code where this string is created;
one for CDs and one for DVDs.  At this moment likely the easiest
thing to get around that would be to make that ID into some
"hardwired" constant.  Clearly this is not an option in a real
code.  Regardless of future changes a length check is missing.


A short file name would be fine with me. I don't need so much
information included as the image name since I only desire an iso to
burn to a DVD blank.

Thanks for leading me through to this point.

For now, I will burn the DVD for test 2 and wait for feedback on t
