you are probably right on the installer part : it's maybe too big for the
-research to develop it. But I think it's still a good thinkg to talk about it,
with logs, meeting reports and so on. It might be good to have at least
organized and written notes on the subject, even if we don't bring anything
new. Installer development should not be held by the -research imo, but
Installer research can be :)

We can discuss the various scenario possible, list them, and see if they are
really doable, realistic, which one is the easiest, or more powerfull, or more
flexible, or more gentoo way. (sorry for my bad english, it's the morning
here:)

The config tools discussion and development will be initiated here. We can end
up with a prototype, and development team(s), schedule, and specifications.
