I liked Libranet 2.8 but there's one thing to watch: The adminmenu app
wants to install a sources.list that points to experimental and snapshot.
I took them out, finally.

Although I snipped your original comment, I agree that Libranet has a nice

in Debian 2.0 was the reason I switched to Debian in the first place.  It
was later I discovered APT and its friends.
