you can build a big DDL file, look at the distrib module there is an ant target that generates such a bug ddl file.
the principle is that most modules are outside of the core (unless this is very important) so modules like news, list, sections etc... are outside of the core to keep the core size small.
it lead also to a better development so, people can develop nukes modules and then they submit them to us. then we integrate the module in the CVS.
with that you can also build a nukes "a la carte"
That makes sense. So what is the best way to put -- say -- 'news' back in my custom nukes? I suppose processing the related news DDL file is not enough?
And a Big Thank You for all your help and nice work, Julien!
