I'm getting ready to make a B21 release.  I don't want to include gcc,
gas, ld, etc. in this, though, because experience has shown that
it just causes confusion for people later on who try to use the old
outdated version of the compiler.

So, I was hoping to either provide a pointer to your site or to
actually mirror it at the sourceware.cygnus.com.  Alternatively,
I could give you an account on sourceware if you thought it would
be useful.

My basic stumbling block to releasing this right now is that I don't
have a full version of InstallShield here and I don't want to rely on
the internal group who did this last time to produce it since they are
notoriously slow.  So, I was thinking of trying to just do something
with a shell script and offering the option to download individual
packages from the net or bundling everything up and sending a large tar

So, the shell script would just ask basic questions like "what packages
do you want to install?", "where should I install this?" and "should
this be root, then?".  There won't be any fancy graphics or anything.

What do you think?
