Perhaps I am just stupid, but how are these components an improvement? Perhaps they'd be for a lesser distro were dependencies are broken, apt hasn't been ported, or repositories aren't available, but in Debian I just to aptitude install evolution and I have everything I want.
Perhaps the idea here is to distribute the packages outside the repositories or CDs, so that one could install something like Oracle or DB2 in a single-file component without loosing package granularity?
