(Is there a non-ambiguous abbreviation for “appliance”? I don’t want to use “app builders”, because people would obviously get the wrong impression…)
I started looking into Kiwi a while back, but backed off because they seem to have DRY problems. Not to mention it’s written in Perl.
Cobbler and Thincrust look a little more promising, at least on the surface, but it’s hard to get a good sense of the kind of flexibility I can get out of them. It certainly doesn’t look like either of them have the ability to install a Debian/Ubuntu system without being handed the 20 lines of required pre-seed, but I could be wrong.
Does anybody have experience with these? Does anybody know if they fit the 4 features from last time, or could be hammered into fitting them?
