Yes - but perhaps this is to be fixed for 2.1-stable (once we have it), not for 2.0-stable. That's because we only have the "make iso.gz" functionality in -current (which the next release will be based on), not in 2.0-stable, and we're being very conservative at getting changes into 2.0-stable. I don't think we should change that approach now; I think that it is more productive for us to concentrate on getting a new release out sooner rather than later. Right now, our users who want 2.0-stable should install 2.0-release, then upgrade to 2.0-stable. Indeed, this is not perfect - more work to do and potential extra hardware support issues with the older kernel in 2.0-release.
