If we talk about some improvements to sysinstall which is listed in the
list: I like to think about it as a "fix some shortcommings until the
new installer is committed".
Regarding the PXE installer: IIRC this is more or less a cut&paste from
a message in the mailinglists. If you know Solaris Jumpstart: it's
something like this. Just do a PXE boot from a special server and you
get the box installed. I think the simplest implementation would be a
"boot a minimal system, parition the disk, extract an archive"-one.
0 and 1. Now what could be so hard about that?
