Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-04-21 10:10:14 EDT
Spec URL:

febootstrap is a Fedora equivalent to Debian's debootstrap.  You can
use it to create a basic Fedora filesystem, and build initramfs
(initrd.img) or filesystem images.

febootstrap also includes a separate tool to minimize filesystems by
removing unneeded locales, documentation etc.

The main difference from other appliance building tools is that this
one doesn't need to be run as root.
