Hi Andreas,

you mean like this? 

(not yet approved)  -
(ready)                    -

Thats exactly the approach I put in the original proposed 3.9.1. In Oct 2006
Similarly Bob version 1 took his build instructions from a wiki page.

Edgar complained bitterly that it was on a wiki and was remote script
based. So now we have moved it into Tasks, code managed by Monticello
(still publically editable but from within the image).

Still after fighting my way through a few fixes, I think it is still too
much like hard work.
Ken Causey and I are cooking something up
