Bug#497316: general: Building entire system from source



Package: general
Severity: wishlist


It would be nice to have the option of using a binary or source based 
distribution built from Debian sources.

Ideally, a live CD, could be used to build the entire base system from source
by simply specifying the source repository to be used.

The system could then be configured to allow source builds of all 
additional packages.

Mark.
