umm... I think it's probably worth clarifying the various distributions

What is released with NetBSD vs. what pkgsrc does vs. the various _private_
and 3rd party CDROM distributors.  So what Charles decides to put on his
CD's may be and very likely will be different from what, say, cheapbytes
puts on their CD's.

To my knowledge, TNFi doesn't and hasn't produced _any_ CD's.  Of course, I'd
be happy to be corrected on this.
