You are both correct. What I meant was that I found no tags of the
form "DragonFly_Preview_<version>". Hence when I go to cvsup the
sources, I can't get exactly those sources that built the preview
CD. Simon Schubert thankfully explains why:

I see. That is what I wanted to know. Thanks!

Hmm, a humble request? If you say "<x> is in the wiki", can you
provide a URL to that wiki page? :) I put "cvs tags" in the search
engine and I got:

By "documentation" I meant "the handbook". It sure looks like the
handbook is written from some sort of docbook source:

A path and a gateway have no meaning or use once the
objective is in sight.
