Hello, I think the Stage3 and (Vanilla )Kernel-Sources should be added,
that is good and necessary for networkless-installation via the shell.
So nobody is forced to use the installer's or the "vodoo-scripts".
The distfiles would be nice, but I think they are not important, if sb.
really want compile more than just the kernel, he/she would be use the
network to catch the current sources?
If I want compile a real personal system it would be the best why to use
the current sources, and not 4 mounth old sources?
Other question: Will the voodoo-scripts also avaible in the 2007 release
for the people how use the shell to install? Or will the vodoo-scripts
completly removed, because they are unnecessary on the DVD?
