I've been whinging in other threads about the lack of a release package and so far it seems that that's getting mostly ignored. Fair enough ... i figure you people are busy and you did just release a new version ... so further proof to the busy issue.
but here is the thing, 3.25 finished downloading for me yesterday (late yesterday) and today i come online and fine 3.26 is out. I installed 3.25 anyway (it took a week to come down ...) and find that netbeans 5.5 is completely fscked. bummer (topic for another thread and i don't blame you ... odds it is fixed in 3.26 right?
Never the less the time to lead on the DVD to come down and the new version (another 3.3GB) to be release concern me. I can't just download DVDs worth of data for a few hundred MB of updates. I saw the delta stuff and have yet to understand it full (so there may be a much better solution) but what i really really want is what every distro i've got deployed can do:
Update to new release state using emerge (or layman).
The changes from version to version must be maintained somewhere, surely it is possible to chuck them into a script / archive make them a package, let people download it and run emerge world (using whatever switches) and presto there is the latest sabayon.
Can someone please tell me how i can do this manually, IF there is such a package and if there is not, what the obstacle is.
