Local .debs not being found.
I maintain a full i386 Debian mirror as well as an archive of local
packages on the same server. My local debs archive consist of local
code as well as packages backported from unstable. To prevent them
from being deleted by the nightly rsync, I've placed the local and
backports into a separate pool under another directory different from
Essentially this creates a new and separate archive (/mirror/local/)
with its own package pool (/mirror/local/pool/) that's sibling to
/mirror/debian and /mirror/debian-non-US containing a local section as
well as as main, contrib, and non-free sections.
The problem I'm having is while I can point debian-cd to the new
hierarchy (LOCALDEBS=/mirror/local), this only looks for the
dists/$CODENAME/local section and ignores main, contrib and non-free.
Additionally, while debian-cd knows the local packages exist, 'make
mirrorcheck' doesn't seem to look into $LOCALDEBS/pool for the local
packages; instead it reports them missing.
Obviously my goal here is to cut a set of Debian CDROMs *including* my
local and backported packages, but I'm stuck.
