IIRC, the secured stuff was turned off because the *old* (potato) apt
couldn't handle it - correct? (The flamewar at the time covered a wide
range of topics, I may have missed something...;-) But people should
be able to upgrade directly from potato to woody!
A while ago, there was a proposal by Santiago Garcia Mantinan (also
archived with #97364) to kludge around the problem with the old apt by
putting the secured directory onto the CD, deeply nested in other
dirs. There was no reply to this on the list - would it make sense to
change debian-cd to do this?
