Relax, all you need is something like mirror/ncftp/lftp which could do
recursive grabbing and, well, /usr/share/examples/worm/makecdfs.sh :-)

sh /usr/share/examples/worm/makecdfs.sh would show a simple usage
message. That's all. If you want a bootable iso (of course you want
it), add a -b flag, which is only documented in the script itself :>

I did make release before if I simply want a bootable and up-to-date
iso image, but it costs too much time. :> IMHO, unless you want a
customized, locally hacked cvs repository become a iso, you don't have
to expend time on making release.

Last time (2 days ago) I packed a releng_4 iso to install FreeBSD on an
old box, which has no workable NIC, no usable floppy, only a 12X
CDROM. The time consumes for make/burn the iso is around 10 minutes :-)
