Putting them on the CD is also not a good idea (just in case someone

Well, how about that ?
Put a full repository in tgz-form somewhere. This takes about 95 megs.
You have a base to get up-to-date easily and are not tempted to download
that all the time.
Maybe one could take an iso with a full repo and gzip that - it will
take about 160 megs approximately since the nrelease-iso takes about
60 megs in gziped form.
And to manage *that* is not difficult.

Managing is not the problem. But I really don't like downloading sources with the ISO. Additionally, I was under the impression that cvsup didn't really use the sources for the initial sync... but I could be wrong there.
