Since noone seems to have any comment on this, we can start with step 2.
We have to decide which tools are actually going to be designed. I
propose the following, comments are, naturally, welcome :) :
1) Runlevel editor: to add and remove services from runlevels, and to
start, stop and restart services. I actually made this, some time ago,
screenie can be found at:
http://blubber.student.utwente.nl/~blubber/gct.png Although I made it
myself completely, it's based on redhats tool.
2) Network configuration editor
3) Portage editor: to edit all variables in /etc/make.conf, including
selecting mirrors, and adding use-flags
4) User administration tool: to administrate local users.
Suggestions are welcome, keep in mind that we are deciding on which apps
to make. The individual requirements are the next step.
