Thanx for that Philippe. I'll have a proper read shortly.
Looks like we'll get to meet at Fosdem. It would be good to discuss this
stuff some more. Anyone else on this list going to be there?
So we now have somewhere between 3 and 4 schemes for building small debian
systems. Maybe Embedded Debian should just be an agnostic breeding ground
for different schemes? (I don't actually think that would be the most
effective use of our time, but it's an interesting idea :-)
BTW. I got the new emdebian WML site working this morning. Most of its links
are broken right now but the structure and content is all there (on my
laptop). I'll put it in CVS on sourceforge imminently.
As soon as I've fixed the links it can become the real site and there will
be somewhere to put all the useful info we are generating.
It's now there as http://emdebian.sourceforge.net/newsite/ but please just
comment on the content - I know all the nav is broken :-)
