9 ++ on that. While LiveCDs draw new users due to spiffy things you can do with
10 "your" GentooCD, i'd like the releng folks to concentrate to make a stable and
11 well tested release (which collides with the nightly proposal). To top it off:
12 nightmorph was quite right in pointing out, that we need to accompany these
13 releases with documentation -- gentoo in my eyes draws greatly in this two
14 areas: flexiblest package manager around *and* greatest docu around.
15 We should keep it that way.
