Move existing project definitions from projects/gsoc_2011/ to
The goal for this reorganization is to remove any knowledge of the projects
classification from the file hierarchy: the classification goes into tags,
and projects indexes automatically list projects based on such tags.
Also, the current gsoc_2011 name was wrong anyway, because GSoC 2011 has
already concluded and projects would have had to move to a gsoc_2012 directory
Lastly, yes, "projects/project/*" is slightly redundant. But I want to keep
the project lists from the projects "database" clearly separated.
This is as proposed in www@.

16: sysinst, the NetBSD installation tool, should be able to get NetBSD set up with most packages relevant to the end user during the installation step, to make it possible to get a usable system during the initial setup.
17: The packages might be simple packages like screen or bigger ones like firefox.
18: Configuration of the packages is not required to happen in sysinst.
20: A short overview of the steps involved:
22: * Improve sysinst so it can list a pkgsummary.gz file on the install media and offer to install a subset of them. There should be a chooser included in sysinst where the user can select the packages they want to install.
24: * There should be some pre-defined sets included with sysinst that define the necessary packages for a Gnome or KDE desktop, so the user just chooses them (possibly just by adding appropriate meta packages to pkgsrc).
26: * Support fetching a pkgsummary file from a remote host (usually ftp.NetBSD.org with useful default PATH for architecture/release, but overridable) and offer installations of packages from there as well.
28: For bonus points (just as last step when the rest works):
29: * Come up with lists of packages for amd64 to fill a CD or DVD (including the NetBSD base system)
