Bug#545403: live-helper: packageslists directory created in config but unused
when the chroot_local-packageslists behaviour was changed, i was not fan
of that. however, it appears to be not that easy...
on the one hand, declaring that everything in chroot_local-packageslists
is used automatically sucks, because then, if you have multiple lists
for multiple types of images, you have to remove some files for every
build, except the list that you're going to use.
on the other hand, declaring that nothing in chroot_local-packageslists
is used automatically is nice, because you can do a simple lh_config
call in order to activate the list you want, and don't need to move
arround files. otoh, it is inconsistent with the other config/*
for legacy reasons, we should not change the behaviour in live-helper
1.x. but for live-helper 2.x, i'd really like to get some way out of the
above dillemma - any ideas welcome, i'm sort of out of ideas myself.
...except one (which sucks somehow as well, though): we could request
packages lists to be named with a particular extensions, e.g. we would
only use chroot_local-packageslists/*.list automatically. that would
allow to have other files in there that are not used, and could teach
lh_config to 'activate' packageslists by renaming them.
anyway.. commends and better ideas wanted and welcome.
