I'll second this. I have worked myself through all the docs for the
pseudo image kit for 2.0r0 and found it works perfectly well - if only
you can find a good server with enough bandwith for the rsync ;-)
Certainly there's always something to be improved - but unless someone
can do it better (and can show us ;-) the word "crap" on other's work
is not recommended.
I did have some problem on the debian-cd-kit that could not be solved,
but I wouldn't call it "crap" just because I'm too plain stupid to fix
the problem ;-)
