Looks good.
I am already using gzs converted to tczs in my optional directory.

I was wondering if the rc core components could have rc in their names.
Ex: Xprogs-rc.tcz
I use symlinks to share optional between release and release-candidate tce directories.

Particularly using "rc" as suffix of files unrelated to 'run commands' might potentially lead to confusion.
Perhaps "-rel" or something else might be less problematic.

Well... "-rel" would seem to lose the "condidate" part.  I like the idea of using some kind of signal, though.  How about something indicating to -which- rc it applies, for the benefit of those of us who don't do cleanup diligently?  Something like  Xprogs-3.5rc1.tcz
32 bit core4.7.7, Xprogs, Xorg-7.6, wbar, jwm
PPR, data persistence through filetool.sh
USB Flash drive, one partition, ext2, grub4dos

What should the order be? If this is indeed important, it could perhaps be mentioned in the OP?

I only mentioned it because .gzs load before tczs. So to emulate prior setup place new tczs before existing tczs.

Perhaps intended, but after using "sudo tce-setup" and starting x and also rebooting with Xprogs, Xlibs, Xvesa, flwm, wbar in onboot.lst in that order, the screen background is black/blank.

Using panel/wallpaper/colour and chosing any colour brings back the screen background and tinycore logo.
