Something like this?


The mechanism which that particular script uses to find repositories
is a nasty kludge (don't ask), but it would not be difficult to
re-implement using something like a JSON file listing all the
repository URLs if people want a tool that does something like this.

Alternatively, for the simple case where one just wants a current
build tree, one can just check out releng/alpha and type "make init".
