Besides being the virtualization host, Owl perfectly fits for small services normally running in a VDS (for me, that's only OpenVPN) or in VPS (that's almost everything, unless it requires bloatware like Java, Python or Ruby). Possibly, we can create the VZ template with absolute minimum of packages (primarily, libraries) for using as a starting point to make containers for DNS, or mail server, or HTTP(S) frontend, or database cluster member, or... whatever. Another option could be to use multiple installorder.conf files for different setups and choose among them during installation, like this: make TARGET=(full|runtime|devel|host|vztemplate) installworld That would allow our users to build their own distributions which would perfectly fit their needs. -- Alexey V.
