$Id: TODO,v 1.69 2004/09/06 05:57:58 vagrant Exp $

general:
  adopt downstream official debian package wording for descriptions and templates
  put in release specific comments, such as ##SARGE## and ##WOODY##
  restructure CVS archive... get rid of most of the pesky sub-directories.
  things in all the various scripts marked TODO and FIXME
  clean out the TODO and FIXME entries that are finished...
  improve documentation and general description of process
  write man pages (use "manedit"?)
  ditch, replace or rewrite easydialog (possibly debconf-based?)
  create a cdrom-specific package, and strip network-specific assumptions out
    of lessdisks-terminal, maybe create lessdisks-base-terminal
  make apt-get upgrade work for all packages
  "proper" use of debconf
  internationalize/localize debconf templates
  access to local devices (printer, sound, floppy, cdrom, USB keys, etc)

lessdisks-terminal:
  use DHCP requests to determine things such as X font servers.
  more flexible/standard method for generating /etc/apt/sources.list
  move most of lessdisks-terminal-install into postinstall scripts...
  debconf configuration for lessdisks-terminal (most values in
    lessdisks-terminal.templates, install packages, kernel, mknbi, initrd
    packages as part of lessdisks-terminal-install. explore
    debconf-set-selections?)

lessdisks-xterminal:
  use $xf86config variable consistantly
  xserver should be defineable as module rather than XFree86 binary (x_config_ltsp, X-lessdisks, rc.xterminal)
  x_config_ltsp: option to force v4 or v3 X server
  use "daemon" package to call lessdisks-xsession rather than inittab
  improve and test lessdisks-xconfigurator
  re-write build_x3_cfg to use functions in ltsp_functions
  explore xf86config-knoppix
  option to select sdm or XDMCP in debconf

initrd-netboot-tools:
  determine why it fails to build from lessdisks-install, but "lessdisks-aptget -f install" manually works
  support for PCMCIA network cards with initrd
  finish debconf configuration for initrd-netboot-tools (only has template)

lessdisks:
  dhcp3-server example config file and support in lessdisks-configure
  capability to install and maintain multiple chroots
  installer:
    make progress bar on installer more robust and optional
    release detection (sarge/woody/sid) in lessdisks debconf working
    call base-config scripts after lessdisks-install
    cross-architecture support (i.e. install chroot for powerpc with x86 server)
    support non-http install methods (file: w/ bind mounts?)
