Finished. My copy of debian-cd for 2.2 rev3 is available at

I hope I can find time tomorrow to check the stuff into CVS, when I've read
enough docs to safely try branching off the Makefile. That's why I'm posting
it on the web for the moment. 

On the same location is the typescript and the interesting parts of the
working directory of my final test run. You can use it to check if your images
make any sense (esp. md5sums.txt). My resulting images:

-rw-r--r--    1 costar   costar   664254464 Apr 20 00:13 potato-src-3.raw

AFAIK these images are correct in every aspect, except the non-US Contents.gz

I actually had to exclude four kernels, 2.2.10, 2.2.12, 2.2.13 and 2.2.15,
to get rid of the 4th Source CD. For that, I've also added a source-exclude
(BTW, this is already set up in the CONF.sh of my package, you should only
have to change the various source/destination directories.)

Before running, cd dists/potato/main/source/misc/ in the FTP archive and
  ln -s ../../../../../pool/main/m/mysql/mysql_3.22.32.orig.tar.gz .

And maybe it's better to wait for a good version of the non-US Contents.gz;
I already sent a report to debian-devel but it might help if more people
do ;-)
