I believe other daily images are based on testing. Though, I'm not
that currently works for kfreebsd-*.
Let me see if I've got this right...
The installer being "based on" (e.g.) Sid/unstable means that the
active components of the installer CDs (the parts that do the
installing, not the parts that will be installed) come from the
current Sid/unstable toolset. It is possible (even, sometimes, done)
for an installer to be "based on" testing/Squeeze, or even stable/Lenny.
Regardless of what the installer is "based on", it should be able to
install components from any of the current distributions: stable/
Lenny, testing/Squeeze, unstable/Sid.
Is this correct?
If so, there remains the question of were the passive components (i.e.
things being installed) of the installer CDs/DVDs/etc... are drawn from.
Is there an established policy on any of this?
