Package: choose-mirror I have been thinking that better support for oldstable would be good to have, even for netboot, floppy installations. This should be possible... During the release process for Etch, we also saw a somewhat related problem in choose-mirror with CD installs because the Release file on the mirrors had not been updated even though CD-ROMs were already at stable=etch. In generators/50mirror apt-setup sets the following based on the Release file on the CD-ROM: mirror/codename=etch mirror/suite=stable But choose-mirror will then check the mirror first for "stable" and thus finds "sarge" as codename. As the installation is now much more based on codename anyway, maybe we should ignore the suite a bit more and switch to matching primairily on codename. This would also get rid of having to set suite=<codename> in debian/rules for official releases. Alternatively, we could also let generators/50mirror set mirror/suite to the codename from the CD (similar to what we do in debian/rules).
