Re: XS-X-Vcs-XXX field not (yet) announced


        Coming back to what it would take to fully specify sources in
 an arch archive so that users can download the sources, I think that
 the best thing to use would be to provide a URL for a grab file. The
 grab file has a syntax:
| Archive-Name: [the name of the archive]
| Archive-Location: [the location of the archive]
| Target-Revision: [PACKAGE|VERSION|REVISION to get]
| Target-Directory: [optional][The suggested directory to get into]
| Target-Config: [optional][A configuration to build upon grabbing]

        I would also like to change the field name to  XS-VCS-Arch
 (tla is one implementation, baz is another, the VCS is called arch).

I feel like I am sharing a ``CORN-DOG'' with NIKITA KHRUSCHEV ...
