Yes. Usually I do autobuilding of those files since you're making it
for a moving target. Check the files headers for debian-installer and
debian-installer+kernel task files and see the commands need to build
them using a mirror as origin.
There is the generate* calls there that as we warned you, i've added
it in simple-cdd some time ago. These generate* scripts are updating
the task files, and that's right but they don't update the udeb.list.
The udeb.list and the task result differ, so i had the problem. Isn't
udeb.list updated from time to time? I'll give it a second try now and
see if the udeb.list was updated on the mirror.
