ATM I've splitted off bootstrap and installflavour and have a system
for generating 'flavours'. It doesn't work as yet but I'll get some
code tomorrow and maybe try debianising it. It's just cutting and
pasting code mostly but also adding some functions to make a 'flavour'
When I get this working I'll upload it to my website (see sig) or
email it to anyone who wants it.
BTW when there's a system for granting SVN commit access put me on the
list of applicants :-)
