Yeah, right now, the best way to install Planet is to grab the nightlies and
follow the instructions in the INSTALL file. Once you've done that, you can
update it - even if you grabbed the tarball! - with bzr. Just 'bzr pull' in
the planet directory.

Not outside the tarball, which is something I should rectify. The INSTALL
file in the tarball is very useful, though.
