Bug#154137: boot-floppies: plea for "vanilla" sub-directories

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A; reported 2002-07-24
Severity: minor

This was previously reported on the debian-boot mailing-list

I do not take much risk pretending that the "disks-i386/current/"
directory tree is extremely confusing for most people, especially for
the newcomers.

I think a simple (?) modification would greatly enhance understanding of
this (lack of?) order and enhance understanding of the whole "4.2
Downloading Files from Debian Mirrors" section in general:

   the addition of "vanilla" sub-directories.
For instance, today, you can find "kernel-config" files at 3 (!) different
depths in the hierarchy. Using "vanilla" sub-dirs (or "default" sub_dirs, or
even both names with a symbolic link,...), would reduce this to 2
different depths only, and even 1 depth only for most other files.
