Subject: [gentoo-dev] Decision to remove stage1/2 from installation documentation
Date: Tue, 22 Nov 2005 14:45:32
We have received *numerous* complaints from users about the decision to
remove stage 1 and 2 from the installation documentation.  I realize it's
still available if users are willing to dig for it, but not all users do.

In my years of monitoring www@g.o, we've received the most
complaints about this decision than any other single decision.  Is there a
way we can re-introduce the stages into the installation documentation,
perhaps with gigantic warnings saying, "for advanced users only" or "use at
your own risk"?

Gentoo claims to be giving freedom. However, I was dissapointed to see that
the stage 1 had been removed from gentoo 2005. Infact, even the handbook
makes no refference of it. This takes Gentoo another step closer to other
distros like Ubuntu.

A dissapointed user,
