Packaging extra contnets for the CDs or not?



Hi,

I'm still struggeling with the image creation for the CDs, namely how
to specify and how to get the extra files like docs, bootloader,
icons, batch files, ....

Should I build a series of skeleton-*.udeb containing all the extra
files that we don't build from source?

Currently they are copied from the debian archive which requires the
builder to be online and redownloads them for each build. That is
rather ugly, fragile if the files are updates and hard to update since
ftpmaster has to move the files manually each time.

Currently the following files come to mind:
