I've just committed the changes I had prepared (and tested). I'd very much appreciate a review of these changes. One thing that is not completely nice is that bootstrap-base now installs a file in /usr/lib/debootstrap/. I thought about putting it elsewhere, but think the current location is defensible as well with the rationale that it provides a missing component of debootstrap. I also have a patch prepared that saves 3kB by using tab indentation in debootstrap and function. Will commit that next. > except I'd do it by adding: > elif type udpkg >/dev/null 2>&1 && udpkg --print-architecture > >/dev/null 2>&1; then ARCH=`udpkg --print-architecture` > > ... to debootstrap rather than passing the architecture in from > base-installer. Hmmm. Why? We also control other (IMO similar) parameters from base-installer and your suggestion adds an (admittedly light) dependency on D-I internals to debootstrap. Cheers, FJP
