Nice review.. it's a pity he didn't talk about mintInstall..
I apologize for my oversight on mintInstall. I knew it was there, but just forgot to mention/try it out! I have updated the review to include a discussion on mintInstall. I must say that I am very impressed with it and it looks tremendously easy to create the .mint files.
I want to congratulate the entire Mint 3.0 team again for such a great distribution.
