comments on files and etc. I'm sure we can get ppl to help with some tasks!
* /ezquake/cfg -> most (all?) the files here are oudated. imo, either clean up, deleting most files, or update those files. teamplay.cfg is from 2004.
* why the existance of /help ? is it required? why not put this inside help.pak ? it's confusing for the user (user can't do anything there)
* remove /manual folder and replace with a hyperlink in /ezquake
* /sb/update-sources.bat has wget commands. not usable in windows.
* clean and update /sb/`* ? no use for filetrs like ctf,tf or eu-4on4, or qizmo.
* remove pak.lst

    "why the existance of /help ? is it required? why not put this inside help.pak ? it's confusing for the user (user can't do anything there)"
    User shouldn't really browse the ezquake dir anyway. It is none of his business what files are here.

    "remove /manual folder and replace with a hyperlink in /ezquake"
    There is already a visit.txt with a URL. How do you make a hyperlink file that works on all platforms?

    "remove pak.lst"
    Can't really do that as lots of user update their installation by just extracting new ezquake zip archive into their Quake dir. Updated pak.lst makes sure the newest paks are loaded and the old ones are not loaded anymore.

    /ezquake/help
    whatever you say.

    /manual
    see attached file.

    pak.lst
    if i keep the .lst file, and if i put a new pak or pk3 file in /qw folder it doesn't load, because it isn't on .lst file?
