Anyway, you may want to look at these generators: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=d-i/apt-setup.git;a=blob;f=generators/91security;h=351e1ac16e0649a1d20171335c6deaf936e02aef;hb=HEAD http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=d-i/apt-setup.git;a=blob;f=generators/92updates;h=d68ca89fe2021669db2f6e7ef008f226924280f9;hb=HEAD http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=d-i/apt-setup.git;a=blob;f=generators/93backports;h=1021d5f09b18e2109c71c2f4dd3dcbd48fdb71a8;hb=HEAD Some bits of factorization might be useful (esp. to get commented lines generated in the security case).
