The current installer download only core.db.tat.gz. So each package we
offer in the installer that don't belongs to a package in core will get
a "None" as repo source.
We should investigate this (ex. how aif handle this). But i think it's
OK, cause we advise the user at this point: install only the base/core
system (and your absolutely needed additional packages: wlan stuff etc).
But never heard that this "None" status irritates any user...
BTW: Aaron, have you modified the archiso/package.lst for this Alpha
ISOs (20-Jan-2009 17:53)? I miss dmraid, which we want include.
