Question debian minimalist distro

A while ago I came across what was not quite a distro but a script that installed a minimalist set of apps on top of a clean net install of debian. Seem to have lost the name of the project - can anyone tell me ?

I've not seen a script like that, but I'll typically just install what I need as I need it. For a desktop, just do aptitude install xorg lxde (or your other favorite desktop or window manager).
