Unfortunately I cannot see what’s inside this repository or some
siblings I've tried (access denied). Does it basically contain the
same packages as the final sclo repo or are there some hand-tweaked
packages aimed at getting through a bootstrap?

I guess that bootstrapping was a manual process with lots of dirty
hacks and workarounds ;). Is this a good impression of how it went?
