Re: Anyone working on an automated install?

Again, thanks everyone. I guess I have my answer. Nobody is really
working on automating sysint using a configuration file, because a
script does the job, even if it can get complicated for certain setups.

Doing a quick search online, there have been a few projects intending to
do what I'd like (but not specifically). All of these projects
unfortunately seem to be abandoned, maybe because they were aiming to do
too much at once.

I've been looking at the source code for sysinst, but I cannot make no
head-nor-tail of it - as previously said, my coding skills aren't great.
Though, even if I did succeed in modifying sysinst to take a
configuration file, I'd still have to find a way to send it to you guys,
so that it'll get accepted and of course, it'd have to be ported
successfully to all other architectures.

TBH, I think this one is a no-go, I'll probably end up having to install
it on each machine manually, as there are some partitions on some
machines that I want to keep.

Though, of course, it's a feature I'd definitely like to see in NetBSD
in future.
