Bug#30959: Obsolete boot-floppies dependency and a suggestion

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.0.11

  Hi, I thought it was worth mentioning that boot-floppies appears to depend
on newt0.25-dev, a package which appears to have vanished in a puff of smoke and
been replaced by newt0.30-dev.

  Actually, I have one other minor question; boot-floppies appears to assume
that you have a Debian CD or local FTP mirror or some other mounted version
of the package repository.  Is it possible that boot-floppies could be
modified to allow the use of wget, ftpget, or some similar facility?

  Nothing is hopeless.

(a) Assume the opposite.
(b) If something _is_ hopeless, then its condition can only improve.
(c) If its condition can only improve, then there must be hope for it.
(d) Therefore, nothing is hopeless.  QED.
