Description Dennis Gregorovic 2010-05-20 15:57:15 UTC
$ rpm -q --qf "%{SUMMARY}\n%{DESCRIPTION}\n" -p febootstrap-2.7-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
Bootstrap a new Fedora system (like debootstrap)
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.

Since this package is being used in RHEL as well, the summary and description should be updated accordingly.
