Project info for Debconf

Share This Created 7 Mar 2000 at 00:54 UTC by joey.



Debconf is the new generation of configuration management tools for Debian. Unlike a general system configuration program like LinuxConf, Debconf is specific to Debian packages, and is normally only used at package install time. It's a way to get rid of all those annoying questions Debian packages often ask when they are installed; or a way to present them to the user via a varierty of UI's.

GNOME is also using a system derived from Debconf's specification for user-level confirugation of GNOME apps, though the codebase is different.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
