maintboot 0.1.0

Run maintenance tasks outside the OS

maintboot runs commands outside of the current OS, with exclusive access to the system and hardware.

This can be useful to run maintenance tasks, like repartitioning, in a controlled environment.

Maintboot builds an appliance on the fly from a list of packages (using supermin). It then loads the appliance with kexec, bypassing the bios, and runs the maintenance script in that new context.

See github.com/g2p/maintboot for installation and usage instructions.
