Re: Weird entry in ISO
Our base ISO/IMG will always be small and will not have any bells
pkg_radd (via internet connectivity) is *the* official way to get
more packages installed after an installation. Trying to pack packages
onto CDs, DVDs, or large images has historically been a big lose for us.
That said, we do have a larger nrelease build called the GUI build
which includes a lot more packages. Getting them all built is fraught
with difficulties and I can't promise that a GUI image will be
available for this release. We will not know how solid the 2010Q3
package set is until the first week of October.
I am open to using other pkgsrc management utilities, or at least
including them in the GUI image. We could include one or two of
the pkgsrc management utilities on the base ISO/IMG as well.
We are not going to be throwing general gui applications onto the base
ISO/IMG, its hard enough fitting just the basics in there, like 'git',
and there is simply too wide a variety and too many opinions on what
should and should not be included.
