+Description: multiple repository bootstrap based on apt
+ A debootstrap replacement with multiple repository support,
+ using apt to handle all dependency issues and conflicts.
+ .
+ Multistrap includes support for native and foreign architecture
+ bootstrap environments. Foreign bootstraps only need minimal
+ configuration on the final device. Also supports cleaning up the
+ generated bootstrap filesystem to remove downloaded packages and
+ hooks to modify the files in the bootstrap filesystem after the
+ packages have been unpacked but before being configured.
+ .
+ Unlike debootstrap, multistrap relies on working versions of
+ dpkg and apt outside the final filesystem. If dpkg supports
+ MultiArch, foreign architecture libraries can be installed,
+ where available.
