Regarding the first cd: make release only creates a 'mini-install', not the 600M iso that is on the site. This one misses perl for one and some dependencies fail.

AFAIK packages are included by hand.

Correct. We've talked about enhancing the scripts so that this gets included automatically, but it can be problematic since the source location of the packages might be unknown at the time of the build.


Do you mean the distfiles here, or the resulting packages?
If talking about the packages, isn't it as simple as moving the $CHROOT_DIR/usr/ports/packages into $CHROOT_DIR/R/cdrom and using a similar approach as portupgrade? Otherwise an ls */*/*.tbz should print a workable list.


If the distfiles, then one can advise in the release manpage, to do:
/usr/src/release/scripts/print-cdrom-packages.sh 1 | xargs portinstall --fetch-only


and then proceed with RELEASEDISTFILES argument.


The only problem with this is that it's quite common during the RC and BETA phases for the package set to not yet be available through normal means.

Life would be a lot simpler if portupgrade was moved into base :)


Yeah, but that would require putting Ruby into the base, and you'd have an all-out revolt on your hands if that happened.
