I just tested: no patch your patch
squeeze debootstrap ✕ ✓
wheezy debootstrap ✕ ✓
unstable debootstrap ✓ ✓ hacked in #766459
squeeze cdebootstrap ✕ ✕
wheezy cdebootstrap ✕ ✕
unstable cdebootstrap ✓ ✓
squeeze cdebootstrap dies after extraction, before unpacking:
E: Execution failed: No such file or directory
wheezy cdebootstrap dies immediately:
P: Retrieving InRelease
P: Validating InRelease
I: Good signature from "Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key (7.0/wheezy) <email@example.com>"
(or on my partial mirror: W: Couldn't validate InRelease!)
P: Parsing InRelease
W: parser_rfc822: Iek! Don't find end of field, it seems to be after the end of the line!
E: Couldn't parse InRelease!
So cdebootstrap failures are unrelated to this bug.
