Bug#192560: ITP: crosshurd -- Cross-installer for hurd-i386

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-05-08
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : crosshurd
  Version         : 0.9.3
  Upstream Author : Jeff Bailey <jbailey@nisa.net>

  Description     : Cross-installer for hurd-i386

Cross hurd is a debootstrap-like installer for hurd-i386.  It is a
collection of shell scripts (similar to debootstrap, from which it
draws some code) that enables easy setup of a hurd-i386 partition.

It uses apt to fetch packages, and leave them in a state that makes it
easy to reboot into the OS and finish the setup.

Comments appreciated.  This setup method is well tested, and is ready
to go into the archive.
