Backwards, actually. The "official" iso image is created first, and
the jigdo process creates the jigdo and template files.
I'm curious about the process of creating Official iso images. How is it
done? There must be a directory tree that is populated with package
files, some programs that support the installation of a Debian GNU/Linux
system on the HD, another Debian GNU/Linux system that runs from the CD,
and an autoboot program. Are these placed in the image manually,
somehow? Are there scripts that automate some of the process? What
special skills are required? How many individual Debian developers are
considered fully capable of performing this task which seems to me
Is there a document in the Debian archives that discusses this?
