Here ya go.


1) profile-update.patch will bring the current testing branch in svn up-
to-date with the changes made to testing in the last week.
  * Adjusts packages.ent in config_separate to include the
    zlib-security-patch, util-linux-sfdisk-patch & texinfo-segfault
  * Updates zlib.xml, util-linux.xml, texinfo.xml in chapter06
  * Updates chapter05/creatingtoolsdir.xml

2) bootcd-branch.patch will make the adjustments for the bootcd-branch.
  * Updates config_separate/packages.ent to make all packages .bz2
  * Removes digest tags
  * Changes runit to specify nALFS, instead of /usr/local/bin/nALFS
  * Specifies package location in config_separate/general.ent

Hope this is acceptable.

If possible, it would also be nice to remove config_tarball from the
bootcd-branch, as that would never be used, and change config_separate
to become config.  Just a thought.
