   I've seen a few sysinst discussions in the past, but I haven't seen
anyone bring up. (I'm not saying it's a
viable route for NetBSD, but I'm wondering if the people working on
sysinst have taken a look at it).

   To sum up the things which appeal to me:
   - Scriptable (in lua, as a matter of fact)
   - Separated frontend and backend
   - It's been around for a few years, and appears to be stable enough
to be adopted by other projects.

   As for problems, I assume it may be too "bloated" for some platforms.

Kind regards,
Jan Danielsson
