woody Debian Installer plans
The debian installer team is currently planning how the next installer
will work, documents describing these plans are at
One of the primary goals of the woody installer is that it will become
very modular, and rely on debconf style configuration such modules. It
is intended to be a fairly radical change from the current installer.
There has been a very long thread recently on debian-boot regarding how
it should work, amoungst other things there has been a lot of interest
in mass and automated installs.
If anyone has has strong opinions on the installer i would encourage
them to checkout the documents and recent threads on debian-boot mailing
list and discuss there thoughts on the debian-boot mailing list.
It would be good to get different viewpoints whilst it is still very
much in the planning stage.
