on 18 Jan 2003, Richard A Downing sez:

>From top to bottom, but I misinterpreted 6.1 I thought it meant *after the 
project was complete*.  Sure, once everything is in its place and the fat 
lady is finished singing and so forth, the cleanup process should include 
deleting out the source trees.  But I didn't realize that advice referred 
to *each and every compile* for each package.  Now I see that if I hadn't 
just read the explanatory paragraph and skipped the example, I would have 
seen that the example shows just that: removing the source tree of a single 
package immediately after installing that package.

{sigh} I wonder if I'm too old to take Ritalin for chronic attention
