Re: Secure/hardened/minimal Debian (or "Why is the base system the way it is?")

Anything insightful (and hopefully not inciteful) appreciated.

What if....

You recreated just the packages you need for your application and then put the list in the /etc/apt/sources.lists. That way instead of using the "standard" debian packages you could have all your machines point to your server.

The downside is of course that you'd have to maintain your own package list and apply any security fixes etc but if your package list is not large it might be a neat trick.

This might be especially handy for task specific machines which need just a few packages.
