This page is here to collect ideas on new user-visible changes that could be rolled into Lenny.
Infrastructure-related changes are fine, but the ideas collected here are about new things which Debian could bring to Squeeze which aren't coming from upstream.
Examples from the past:
- apt recommends/suggests
- apt triggers
- new installer
What ideas do people have to make Squeeze kick ass?
- Please feel free to elaborate on some of your ideas and link to a separate wiki page if you want.
- If you'd like to sponsor (i.e. volunteer for) an idea, please state it beside the idea.
- 15-second boot?
- New partitioner that integrates raid, lvm and crypt directly and more transparently. Also should have drop down menues instead of always creating a new screen.
New installer based on DebianLive and unionfs-fuse. Boot up a live system with unionfs-fuse for /, partition disks and add them as branch to unionfs-fuse and then copy-up the running system, install bootloader and last drop the CD from unionfs-fuse and eject it.
