I saw this old patch having Reviewed-by from Arnout and Yann and was
therefore tempted to apply it. However, I believe Arnout and Yann made
some very valuable comments before giving their Reviewed-by, and I
would prefer to see those comments be implemented rather than applying
the patch as-is.

To sum-up, the comments are:

 * Split in three patches: 1/ clean-up the installation, 2/ add option
   to remove the admin interface, 3/ move the admin password generation
   from install time to build time. This will also mean you'll have
   more detailed commit log, which will also fulfill a comment made by

 * Use rsync with exclude to copy only the useful files

Could you rework this patch to take into account those comments?

Thanks a lot!
