For the most part, they should be correct. I would ask for everyone to
hold off, since we just made some critical updates with the snapshot and
catalyst, as the -pre1 release for x86 (and any other arches) was broken
when it came to GRP packages. Performing a networkless install using
only stage3 + distfiles + portage snapshot should be fine, but using any
of the GRP packages is known broken. We are working on another
pre-release for x86 as we speak, and I believe that other arches are
doing the same.

Well, there will be a few changes, as we fixed some of the bugs with
2005.0 that required documentation changes, such as the distfiles for
coldplug being missing from the universal CD.
