did you try to create an etch CD on an etch machine? or an etch CD on a lenny

i'd recommend using "--profiles-udeb-dist sid" (or lenny) to pull in the newer
versions of simple-cdd-profiles.

this is probably because you previously included:

  mirror_components="main contrib non-free"

and now you're no longer asking for "contrib", but it's still in the mirror's database.

simply removing tmp/mirror/db should work around the problem, or run:

  reprepro -Vb tmp/mirror clearvanished

sounds like you had luck downgrading to debian-cd 3.0.2?

i think the debian-cd folks may have fixed some etch related bugs in debian-cd
svn, if you want to give that another try, although it also requires patches to
simple-cdd that i just committed to the simple-cdd-devel bzr branch... it's all
changing so fast right before the lenny release. :)

live well,
