Bug#586427: Support for dpkg's filtering mechanism (--path-exclude/--path-include)
dpkg in git has support for filtering files, i.e. a mechanism by which
you can exclude certain files from being installed (e.g.
/usr/share/doc, man pages). This is useful on embedded devices that
don't have much storage.
I believe this feature will land in squeeze so it would be great if
the installer could support this. See #583902 on how this mechanism
Any comments on which udeb should do this? rootskel, base-installer,
or something else?
