Absolutely, as soon as I understand what the difference is.
base-installer is listed in update_excuses.html as all other candidate packages:
base-installer (- to 0.066)
- Maintainer: Debian Install System Team
- 2 days old (needed 2 days)
- base-installer has no binaries on any arch
- base-installer (source) is buggy! (1 > 0)
- Not considered
This is the input data my script uses, along with the Packages and Sources files. How can it tell that base-installer is being treated differently than other packages?
Just adding a blanket disclaimer is not helpful, IMHO.
