Bug#512136: Acknowledgement (ITP: nox -- nox -- Meta package)
I forgot to 'X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel'... so I'm forwarding it.
Subject: ITP: nox -- nox -- Meta package

Description : nox -- Meta packages
No-X is a suite of shell tools, either command line or Curses based,
that are useful for people that don't use X-Window.
- nox-base, depends on the most common command line tools, that are
suitable for most systems (desktop and servers).
- nox-desktop-environment, which is very complete No-X metapackage for
desktop user. It attempts to provides many functionality provided by
graphical desktop environnements, but only text and ncurse based.
- fb-desktop-environment is similar to above, but also have some graphical
progams (using framebuffer... not for vt100 terminals ;-)
- nox-base provides a reduced set of tools that many users might want
to add to a standard system.
- nox-system-tools provides a large set of tools, suitable on both
end-users systems and servers.
- nox-server-tools provides a set of tools, that one probably want on
- nox-network-clients depends on many usual network tools and clients.
The idea comes from wiki pages like http://wiki.debian.org/Console where
visitors/contributors seems to like to install some extra command-line tools.
The current debian/control draft is included below. The current dependencies
on package with priority=standard are going to go away (like "less"), unless
there are useful alternatives in which case It might depends on either (?).
