Re: foreign rootfs without root priviliges with multistrap, fakeroot, fakechroot and qemu user emulation

Hello Johannes,

This scripts look quite helpful. I wonder if it would be worth it to
unify them and make them
more generic to be a .deb package in itself.

In the package selection side, Jonas started a proof of concept at
emdebian git repository:
Maybe that can inspire you to manage per board customizations. `boxer`
enables and disables packages a la a2enmod (from apache2 utilities).

The original idea was to create a .deb package which does all your
board customizations, so one creates a local debian repository and
adds the package to the packages field in the config file.

If the code gets unified and it is possible to easily customize lists
of packages at least it'll be useful for you and me.

Thanks for the fish! :-)
