Well on the purely editing side for what packages are what groups, I
generally use emacs ;-)  For the dependency lists, they're autogenerated
-- more info coming soon.

Working on some documentation on the new comps file stuff.  It's just a
little slow going because every time I get started, I get distracted by
another fire to put out.  I'll get there, though.  My goal is by the
release date at the latest.

Give me a time machine...  there are only really two of us working on
anaconda right now and anaconda isn't even all we work on.  24 hours in
a day, and we can only spend so many of them working :)   We're trying,
though and making some progress... slowly, but surely.

Also, if you've watched the anaconda package closely, you'll notice the
added url tag of http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/.  The plan is to
use it for putting up docs we get the time to write outside of being
tied to the distribution release cycle.
