	I closed that ticket marking it as "wontfix", the dmg should be kept 
as a one click solution for those accepting the default configuration. 
I'd love it if you could write the Wiki entry on installing from 
source, the installation section we had back on OpenDarwin (which I 
liked quite a bit, we could mimic it) is completely gone, I think, and 
we have nothing to offer to unacquainted newcomers.
