package pre-selections tool
Our "release roadmap" says:
New installation utility based on package pre-selections
Debian 2.0 will contain over 1000 packages! To simplify installation,
a new installation program will allow to choose between several
predefined `default installations,' for example, Internet server, X11
desktop, or router/firewall host.
IIRC, as apt/deity is not ready for release yet, it was suggested to ship
a simple tool that would be run at install-time (before dselect) to let
the new users avoid going through the "Select" option.
Bruce posted a few months ago some code that implemented that, using
"dpkg --set-selections", but it had no fancy UI, and no pre-selections
Has anybody been improving that tool? Can we include it in the boot-floppies?
