Re: Mass install / Autoinstall (Was: Re: Debian vs Red Hat??? I need info.)
Agreed that this seems technically sound, but it would be really nice to
have this Real Soon Now. I think it might be reasonably possible to
backport this from Woody into Potato fairly soon after the release of
Potato. The fact is that an automatic installation system will be really
hard to test on the unstable tree. I am not proposing that something like
this should really be called stable, but if it could be made compatible
with the stable distribution (then Potato) that would be very helpful.
