Package: minimal-live
Version: 2.0.0

Hi, dear maintaniner.

I think the packages mdadm and lvm2 should be installed into
the minimal-live iso image, as it is announced as a rescue tool.

lvm2     - Linux Logical Volume Manager
mdadm    - tool to administer Linux MD arrays (software RAID)

Both of them are needed to properly mount disk partitions that
use RAID and/or LVM. I needed to use them to repair a
machine with LVM over RAID whose installed grub was broken.

Although not tried on my own, probably cryptsetup is also a
requirement to rescue systems with encrypted disks.

cryptsetup   - disk encryption support - startup scripts

Probably, taking a look at the packages the debian-installer uses
and also to the packages that get installed in the initramfs
by the initramfs-tools package will give more ideas of packages
that are usually needed to bootstrap a system from scratch.

Thank you very much for your work.
