    Hi,

    Is there a simple instruction set to clone the source and build the various packages?
    I tried building g11n and JDS packages, but the build fails. I know, I must be doing
    something wrong (despite following the instructions verbatim), but any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Rajesh

    Howdy,

    I suggest for the installer-CD to install the following packages by default:

    system/header
    system/header/math/header-math
    developer/library/lint

    Kinda confusing when you try to use gcc for the first time..

    I forgot:

    add developer/gnome/gettext to the default install (at least for pkg-config)..
