If one is connected to internet to be able to download a two gig tarball,
he or she could just as well run this script:

set -x
# simple script to download (ONLY) all package files available through gsrc,
# up to date to this very minute,
# skipping redownloading packages one already has.
# first , install gsrc.
# then cd to the gsrc directory
# then run this script you are currently reading.
# directories with stuff to download:   deps gnome gnu gnustep alpha

ls -1 deps    |xargs -I NAME echo make -C    deps/NAME fetch |bash
ls -1 gnome   |xargs -I NAME echo make -C   gnome/NAME fetch |bash
ls -1 gnu     |xargs -I NAME echo make -C     gnu/NAME fetch |bash
ls -1 gnustep |xargs -I NAME echo make -C gnustep/NAME fetch |bash
ls -1 alpha   |xargs -I NAME echo make -C   alpha/NAME fetch |bash

# This script is in the public domain. It is too simple to copyright.

There's a lot of good reasons why this is preferable to bothering to
generating a giant tarball, but it would be too boring to type them
out when you can probably think of them yourself.
