Question: is there somewhere on the net a script (*) such that:
* it accepts two parameters: a debian release (etch, sarge, woody, ...)
and an (empty) directory;
* it installs required/essential packages (_all_ of them but _only_
them) of such a release as a chroot in that directory
? [Mybe also a third parameter will be useful, the architecture]
(*) complete and explicit lists to use with debootstrap are a solution.
(debootstrap by default installs quite more than really
Every time I do someting like that, too much time is spent for
dependency hunting. Ad every time I forget to save the list of packages :-(
