You can pretend I don't know anything about d-i vs. apt, except for running git log in apt.git and looking for cdrom-related changes; you won't be far from reality. > The attached patch should merge both in a better working way, at least > that is what the testcase is promising me – which I have extended a bit > to cover a bit more ground, too.

It'd be nice to see what happens with several CDs but that's not going to be me today. Some notes: - apt.git is missing at least one commit and the tag. - I think you wanted to close #764442, rather than #76442. I'm tempted to make apt migrate to testing soon, possibly today, because bug reports are piling up. From your maintainer point of view, is there anything speaking against such a move? Thanks again for the swift fix. Mraw, KiBi.
