Re: Directory structure

Regarding the fact that documentation will link to the files, that's
not a new idea, that's the way it has been since hamm at least.

Bruce Sass has done a lot of work already to allow, BTW, the download
to be done via HTTP to standard mirrors.

Anne's approach, basically a symlink farm, is not a very good idea--
remember that most windows FTP clients don't handle symlinks properly.

Furthermore, I reiterate that it's not possible to compare the scheme
if it hasn't been worked through for other arechitectures.

Newbies should use CD-ROM installation -- I'm hoping install from
Official CDROMs is a total straight shot.  In fact, one feature which
is not there yet but should be is for dbootstrap to auto-sense
official CD-ROMs.
