yes. i always test my code before releasing it.  it is, however,
literally impossible for me to test every single way anyone can use

i used this feature to build a freekbox3 installer CD:


an example of how to use the local_packages variable in in

local_packagtes is very limited.  it doesn't download the packages,
doesn't do dependency resolution, and you have to already have the
packages available locally.  you have to specify the full path to all
the .deb files (well, actually you should be able to point to a
directory containing .deb files, but i haven't tested that. sorry.)

i tried to figure out how to get the LOCAL and LOCALDEBS features of
debian-cd to work, with no luck.

i did nothing to change debpartial-mirror, that's a separate piece of
software. (well, the package from debian-np's alioth repository has the
manpages removed.  stupid, i know)

i've worked a little bit to try and use reprepro and an alternative,
since it's available in sarge, but i haven't committed any code yet.

when the new version of debpartial-mirror is working and released, i
will try and release a simple-cdd that works with that, too, and make a
backport (if needed) of debpartial-mirror for sarge.

i tried to fix this in svn.  not sure if it works.

if you could be more specific, that would be helpful.  checkbashisms
didn't find anything.

what version of debian-cd ?  i have only tested with 2.2.22.
