Hi everybody,

starting now, we will ship a different set of Grml flavours
and package sets in future releases.
(For more background please see the October 2011 meeting minutes.)

Our goal is to have one ~300MB ISO flavour which will ship with all the
commonly used tools for rescue & deployment tasks. This flavour
replaces the old full, medium and small ISOs.

Have a look at the (current) package list in detail:
Note that as we go along changes to this list will happen.
If you're missing a tool you're using day to day in rescue &
deployment scenarios, please suggest it!

The daily ISOs (starting 20111115) from http://daily.grml.org/
already use the new package list, so give these a try.
(sid builds fail at the moment, please use wheezy instead.)

Feedback is welcome on the mailing lists, as well on IRC (#grml on


PS: As you can see in the package list, the bare tools for
accessibility will be included, but that's about it. We can't make
any guarantees for working accessibility.
