YACS 0.3 is available => debian-cd ?


YACS 0.3 is ready here :

It does now build source CDs as well. Packages.cd are correctly generated
on binary CD. README.1ST and README.$ARCH are generated when possible.

You can now generate one image after another (when disk space is short).

I think it that this version of YACS features everything that is needed
for beeing the official debian-cd script. That's why I propose that I
rename YACS as debian-cd and that I upload it to potato. I've already
checked the open bugs on debian-cd and slink_cd and corrected those 
I could in YACS. This way when i'll upload the package, all the bugs on
slink_cd and debian-cd will/can be closed.

Do you agree with me ?

BTW, YACS should also be able to generate slink CDs (without non-US
because non-US layout has changed) but I never tried ...

For potato I have :
The sources images i've built here (with non-us) looks like this :
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 626169856 Jul 29 14:32 potato-src-1.raw
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 634093568 Jul 29 14:44 potato-src-2.raw
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 310767616 Jul 29 14:51 potato-src-3.raw

And the binary images :
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 642242560 Jul 29 19:41 potato-i386-1.raw
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 640567296 Jul 29 19:53 potato-i386-2.raw
-rw-r--r--   1 rhertzog rhertzog 170029056 Jul 29 19:56 potato-i386-3.raw

I'd appreciate any positive or negative feedback. Remember that you still
need the APT that is in CVS (cf the announce of YACS 0.2) ... we need
much more testing, especially for non-i386 users (where the bootable target
may cause problems).
