debootstrap is largely unmaintained and cumulating bugs by the dozen. Meanwhile, cdeboostrap sees regular uploads, operates faster (C source), is a drop-in substitute providing the same functions as debootstrap and is preferred over debootstrap by an increasing amount of users. Basically, it's a good idea to let the user choose which one they'd rather use by having "debootstrap | cdeboostrap" in Depends. -- Martin-Éric Racine http://q-funk.iki.fi
