Bug#123948: netinst information

Hello, I maintain the unofficial Debian woody netinst CD images.

There was a question a while back as to the contents of the .disk/info file 
on my unofficial images. It is ''Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 beta "Woody" - 
Unofficial i386 Binary-1 (20020212)''

My images do not have binary-* directories, nor base-images-*.

It seems, therefore, that this test is flawed. There is nothing on the disc 
to indicate that it is an official image, yet it is treated as one. This is a 
larger problem because debian-cd puts the .disk/info file on /every/ image it 
generates, Official and otherwise. Unless this bug is corrected, anyone who 
produces unofficial bootable Debian CDs will be bitten.

If you would like some CD images to test with, they are available:

Broken images

Fixed images (removed .disk/info file)

Feel free to contact me if you need any additional information.
