    The list there is a first draft where I put together some important
    packages that came to my mind. Of course, dependencies pull lots of

    Indeed... Last year, Peter and I (especially Peter) had to hack the

    suggested that we'd first start with potato boot floppies, and if we
    have enough time, try to get the woody boot floppies to work for us
    which would be the prefered solution, of course. Language chooser or
    debootstrap from woody boot floppies would especially be nice...
    Speaking of language, last year we had German boot floppies which I

    too. Grisu? Peter?
