Personally, I hope WRS decides against doing their own thing. From a
regular user's standpoint, having two separate ISOs (the project one and
if WRS decided to roll their own for disc 1) would be confusing as
"But, but, but, I got the ISO from the FTP site and the docs say that it
supports bzip2 packages... so how come all of mine are tgz?"
This will also make keeping the docs in order way more difficult than
they should be. I don't even want to think of bikeshed that will ensue
as to who's stuff the docs should cover...
"It should cover WRS' because that's the official CD producer!"
"It should cover FreeBSD's because that's, uh... FreeBSD!"
Just my $0.02.
