A simple way is to create a partial mirror for this. The reprepro
package has a bugreport from me with example scripts to create a
mirror with only packages listed in the debian-installer task. The
script asks debian-cd for the list of packages and filters by that.
What is missing is adding the docs, indices, manuals, tools. But thats
just one rsync call away.
So it might be easier to make a local mirror than to rewrite debian-cd
to work without one.
