Not yet unfortunately ... It is ~370 MB using zisofs, but should be more around 300 with squashfs (which will be coming out stable in gentoo-sources-2.4.26). I am on a relatively slow DSL connection, so I want to make sure that I have the best product possible before uploading. So, what is the tracking number on those releng boxen being shipped to OSU again? ;) As for "GentooMove" (perhaps GentooMooooove for Larry the Cow), it doesn't look that hard to implement. In fact, it is already in my TODO list. I have some more Catalyst cleanup/ documentation to do, but after that, all my time will go into this effort.
