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: 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.
