As others have already said: looks like very useful. Not sure where to make it available at the moment though (in the middle of a very busy couple of months, and preparing for the next point release). Maybe it'd be nice to have a curated version along with the example preseed with the manual (and thus the website), and a complete version somewhere on d-i.debian.org (where the shorter version could point to)? > To create the page I ran the following command in the debian-installer > directory set up via `myrepos`: > > cat packages/*/debian/*.templates | debconfTemplateToHTML /dev/stdin There are also '.templates*' files.
