Bug#879145: net-retriever doesn't pull udebs from the 'unreleased' distribution


jhcha54008 <jhcha54008@free.fr> (2017-10-19):
> net-retriever pulls udeb packages from one sole suite
> (the one registered in mirror/udeb/suite).
> Non released architectures from www.debian-ports.org may store
> some udebs in the suite 'unreleased' too. These are currently
> neglected by net-retriever.
> The patch below enables the use of both suites by net-retriever
> on non released architectures. (A file 'port_architecture'
> should be created previously by another package, e.g. 
> choose-mirror-bin. See #879130)

We still haven't managed to get around to merging support for backports
over the past few years, but I'd slightly prefer if we could merge it

I only have a vague recollection, but ISTR net-retriever was only able
to perform installations from a single source, and I had to implement
merging Packages files from stable and stable-backports, which I don't
see in your proposed patch.
