I'm not sure that this one is particularly necessary, as the default
location is not changing according to the package managers. It's only
changing according to the stage files that ppl use to install.

Once the package managers roll out -expecting- that make.conf should
be in /etc/portage/make.conf rather than /etc/make.conf, then yes this
should absolutely occur. Right now (and reportedly for the forseeable
future) that is not the case.

AFAIK, the install-cd never provided the handbook. It used to be
manually added to the live-cd.
About adding it to the minimal-cd, we don't want to add manual steps
to the automated weekly builds for an installation process that
already requires network access - the GRP CD stopped being built a
long time ago.

Any objection to the handbook (or even gentoo docs as a whole) being
in portage? 'emerge --searchdesc' doesn't turn it up, and I don't see
it under app-doc/, so I don't think it's there.

The problem I've tended to face is that on any install I do on new
hardware, it's hit or miss whether or not the network will work after
I reboot and work entirely within my installed environment. This is
largely because I don't know which kernel options I need to leave
enabled. That window inevitably requires me to have a separate machine
with network access in order to walk any deeper through the handbook.

Hm, I thought it was. I always use the online version now, but
remember using the one on the disc.

I'm sure we could automate the inclusion of the Handbook as well.
