Hi Ken,

are there any plans afoot to release memstick.img/s for 7.3-R?

If so, where should I look for information on how it may be done?

If not, is there something about RELENG_7 precluding that?  USB stack?

My search for information on the particular recipe/s used to make the 
8.0-R memstick images has proven fruitless so far, despite several 
useful suggestions on ways to make various other sorts of bootable USB 
stick images.  So far they seem to have been made out-of-band, somehow?

My particular interest is in putting DVD release/s onto a 4GB(+) stick, 
hopefully on bootable slices rather than 'dangerously dedicated' form.

cheers, Ian
