Re: Add debootstrap to dependencies?
You may have the potato branch in your CVS working directory, the

I guess, it is wierd though.

Description: Scripts to create the Debian installation system
This package is for developers wishing to build the Debian
installation system on their own. It allows you to create a custom
Debian installation system on floppy disk or other media.
Users wishing to install Debian do not need this package. They should
go to http://www.debian.org/releases/ for information on how to
download or procure installation materials.
