+Description: Tiny utilities for the debian-installer and for embedded systems.
+ BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single
+ small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common
+ utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e. ls, cp, mv,
+ mount, tar, etc). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than
+ their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included
+ provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU
+ counterparts.
+ .
+ BusyBox is used by the debian-installer. Installing BusyBox onto your Debian
+ system is not recommended, unless you are intended to make a very small embedded
+ system. Chances are good that for embedded systems, you will want to recompile
+ to only include the tools and utilities you wish to include.

+Section: shells
+Description: Provides a stand alone rescue shell with tons of builtin utilities.
+ BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single
+ small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common
+ utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e. ls, cp, mv,
+ mount, tar, etc). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than
+ their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included
+ provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU
+ counterparts.
+ .
+ BusyBox-static provides you with a statically linked simple stand alone shell
+ that provides all the utilities available in BusyBox. This package is
+ intended to be used as a rescue shell, in the event that you screw up your
+ system. Invoke "busybox sh" and you have a standalone shell ready to save
+ your system from certain destruction. Invoke "busybox", and it will list the
+ available builtin commands.
