There's a process for requesting new packages be added to the archives, but I can't seem to find one that details how to request new packages be added to the CD. How would I go about requesting this?

I would guess most requests of this kind would have been suitable for discussion during the UDS. There should have been a session discussing the default packages and applications to be included for the forthcoming release in every UDS. – jokerdino Jun 11 '12 at 8:50

It would be better if you discuss it in the Ubuntu Developer Summit(UDS). They are responsible for what packages should come with the default ubuntu installation CD.

Thanks a lot for your reply, but I'd already found that page and it doesn't contain any information on requesting new package for inclusion on the CD. – Chris Wilson Jun 11 '12 at 8:43
Ravi, that is for requesting packages to be included in Ubuntu repositories and not for including packages by default. There is a big difference between the two. – jokerdino Jun 11 '12 at 8:48
Your call really. If I were you, I would try to fix my answer instead of deleting though. – jokerdino Jun 11 '12 at 10:23
