Vbox always did weird and unexplainable things that I could never work
around, other than upgrading either Linux or Vbox.. You will probably

That reminds me, I was going to reply to the whole core-repo definition

I am confused about dosfstools, there is no fsck tool that does anything
useful, so installing them is not really a requirement.

In the long run, I'd say weekly.

Official releases? I thought we'd be rolling (=snapshotting) releases
from now on.

Following what I said above, revamp the download page to point to
releng.al.org for ISO downloads.
