As I recall, Mark W. Krentel wrote:
I was really hoping that the distfiles could be included. For me, that's one of the main reasons for getting the disks. If the sizes are getting out of hand, you might consider going to two sets of disks.
The last time this discussion went by, I suggested a split of the CD sets. I wanted the release set to be the install image, a live filesystem emergency holographic repair disk, and the repository.
Then, a seperate set of disks, optional to buy or subscribe to but released at exactly the same time as the system should be the complete ports collection =with= all the distfiles that are allowed to be stomped onto a CD, and a shell script that would fetch the rest.
The idea being to allow someone to snapshot the ports collection at the time of the release, so that future bit rot (umm... enhancments) in ports wouldn't affect the owner of the release. This is not maybe quite so important for dot releases, but I'd love to have a buildable ports collection for my 2.2.8-RELEASE systems, and for the 3.5-RELEASE boxen as well.
My $1/50. I'd pay. BSDi/WC? Want another product?
