Description: Progeny Debian auto-installation system
 This package contains the Progeny Debian auto-installation system.  This
 system makes it possible to install a complete Debian system with no user
 interaction from a set of configuration files.
 The basic model is that of cloning an existing system; after installing
 and configuring a Debian system to taste, the configuration is "dumped"
 to the configuration files, along with some extra information.
 It currently supports flexible constraints for partitioning
 differently-sized disks in a logical fashion, hardware auto-configuration
 with discover (including configuration of X, if appropriate), network
 configuration via DHCP or a database based on MAC addresses, and
 a cross-platform design making it possible for install media for any
 platform to be created on any other platform.
 Platform-specific files are not included in this package; install the
 "autoinstall-<arch>" packages to install support for <arch>.
