I know some work is being done to port utilities to debian. I am working on
porting to Gentoo linux.
The vunify, vfiles and vbuild utilities would have to, somehow, determine
which kind of vservers they are dealing with. This also applies to vrpm,
although this one would ideally have to be renamed to avoid confusion. There
are several solutions:
1- Additional --pkgtype option. Values would be rpm, deb or gentoo. Defaults
2- New configuration option. For each vserver, a DISTRIBUTION variable could
be added to the config file of each vserver.
3- Guessing. The utilities could look at the files inside the vserver and
guess the distro used.
Any other suggestions? What would be the best?
