ITP: debchroot -- chroot maker
(BTS and -boot bcc'ed)
Well, as much an "intent to author" as an intent to package, but
I'm halfway through writing/packaging a set of scripts to create a live
chroot by downloading packages straight from the archive, and installing
them. It will hopefully be useful for boot-floppies/debian-installer,
and maybe for making potato chroots on a woody system or similar.
The control file's not written yet, but it'll be something like:
Description: Utility to reate a chrooted Debian install
This package allows you to create a chrooted Debian install
underneath an existing install. This can be useful for checking
whether a program works or builds correctly in a different
environment to your regular install (if you are running "unstable"
but want to backport a program to "stable", for example).
The license will be BSDish.
The "0.0.1" version, so to speak, is at
if you're interested.
It'll hopefully be done in a day or two.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG signed mail preferred.
