   I agree that it is very important to be able to reproduce official
releases of FreeBSD N years down the road.  However, that has never
been a requirement of snapshot CDs.  We have never even tagged the
tree for previous snapshots.  We are actually moving more in the
direction you advocate by at least moving the snapshot production into
Perforce so that more developers can participate.  The release
engineers would prefer to do this in CVS, but that is not advisable
for the reasons Peter outlined in his mail.  The source distribution
is included in the output of "make release" for a reason.  If you have
a technical solution to the problems that Peter raised, then I'm sure
[EMAIL PROTECTED] would like to hear about them.
