I think I could mentor that, having had experience with both d-i and
smartcards under Debian.

However, it would appear that either the page is no longer there, or it
was changed into PamNssDebianInstaller. If the former is true, and you
still think it's an interesting project, could you summarize what it is
about? If the latter is true (and the point about smartcard stuff was
not about setting up smartcard auth for PAM, but something entirely
different), do you think you can do it?

<Lo-lan-do> Home is where you have to wash the dishes.
