  Description     : run Debian from external media

Bilibop is a collection of scripts using or used by other programs (initramfs-
tools, udev, aufs, mount, GRUB2) to help admins to maintain a Debian GNU/Linux
operating system installed on a removable and writable media. One of its main
goals is to fix security issues or harden standard rules and policies to make
the system more robust in this particular situation.

The bilibop source package builds the following binaries:

bilibop: metapackage

bilibop-common: shell functions to find the drive hosting the root filesystem
(dm-crypt, LVM, loop devices, aufs and any combination of them are supported)

bilibop-rules: udev rules to fix the removable drive hosting the running
system, and all its partitions, as members of the 'disk' group (fixes bug
#645466). Other optional features for the desktop environment (based on

bilibop-lockfs: make a standard installation to behave like a LiveUSB. Can be
used as an alternative (and enhancement) of the fsprotect package.
