Package: debian-cd
Version: 2.2.20
Severity: wishlist

The README file states:

"If you haven't already, change to the /usr/share/debian-cd/

>From what I've been told this is not necessary, there is a variable
BASEDIR that can be set to define the debian-cd directory. The README
is misleading, I thought I had to change to root or chmod the directory.

It would be nice to have this clarified in the README.

 debian-cd (2.2.24) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Bdale Garbee ]
   * update lists of udebs for hppa to reflect kernel name changes, etc
   [ Richard Hirst ]
   * Fix ramdisk_size value for hppa for both etch and sarge
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Update for Sparc:
     - sparc64: switch to 2.6.12 kernel; make CD multiboot 2.6 and 2.4,
       using 2.6.12 by default
     - sparc32: drop 2.6 kernel support as it has no 2.6.12 kernel
     - restructure silo.conf with proper support for install, expert and
       rescue boot options
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Remove contrib/testingcds. For now the entire setup directory used to
     build Debian CDs is in svn at svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-cd/setup
   * Point sid symlinks at etch.
   * Now build etch CDs by default.
   * Remove DH_CODENAME unset from CONF.sh, to allow it to be passed in
     via the environemtn. Closes: #326814
   * Remove Debian_sid task, which dates from before woody and should not be
   * Don't hardcode the path to debootstrap. And assume there is a debootstrap
     available, as it is a dependency.
   * Since debootstrap is in sbin, add sbin to PATH.
   * Remove other random hadcoded paths to programs in bin.
   * generate_di+k_list: Deal with kernel package name change. All arches
     with 2.6 kernels will now include only linux-image packages.
   * generate_di+k_list: Add some mips and mipsel subarches that are new in
     etch or were missing before.
   * generate_di+k_list: Use kernel-image-2.4-<subarch> and
     linux-image-2.4-<subarch> packages for as many architectures as we can,
     instead of enumerating the versions of the kernels to include. Much
     cleaner and more robust and will make d-i more robust as well.
   * Update task.list with new etch (and some old sarge) tasks.
   * Update task-full-etch and improve the generation recipe.
   * Change debootstrap --print-debs calls to pass debootstrap a mirror to use
     and a temporary directory to work in, so it will avoid downloading the
     Packages files from its hardcoded mirror, and work on amd64 and other
     situations with a non-official Debian mirror. Neccessary since the new
     version of debootstrap has dependency resolution enabled by default.
   * Don't chmod amiboot if it doesn't exist.
   [ Sven Luther ]
   * Fixed powerpc cd builds, added powerpc64 kernels to etch/sid, dropped
     2.6.8 and remaining 2.4.27 kernels, except the nubus/apus ones. Added IBM
     chrp boot files. (Closes: #328274)
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Order task-essential-etch using task.list, and regen to match current
   * Add acpid to generate_di+k_list so it's on the netinst.
   * Add more udebs to excludes trying to trim the netinst size down.
   * Exclude cdebconf from CD1s to prevent both it and debconf being pulled in
     by | dependencies. cdebconf isn't usable right now and has a large
     dependency chain.
   * Exclude inetutils-inetd and openbsd-inetd from CD1 for similar resons.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * generate_di+k_list: Add hfsutils for powerpc; it's no longer in base but
     yaboot-installer needs it.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * For full CD/DVD builds, check that we have an "extra" override
     containing task info. If not, use the sid override instead.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add default UDEB_EXCLUDE files that differ for businesscard, netinst, and
     full CDs.
   * Make the full CD have apt-mirror-setup in its udeb_exclude file, to avoid
     that component being installed to satisfy apt-setup's dependency on it (I
     hope), so that the user is not unncessarily asked for a mirror during a
     full CD install, but is still asked for one during installs from the
     smaller CDs.
   * Add initramfs-tools to generate_d-i+k_list
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Merged in MAJOR changes for jigdo creation - the long-separated JTE
   * Split out the actual ISO/jigdo creation code from the Makefile into
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Explicitly list ppp and pppoeconf in generate_d-i+k_list, since they are
     not installed by debootstrap and we do want them on netinst CDs.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Split out the code that copies debs into the temporary trees and
     creates Packages files from the Makefile into tools/add_debs
   * Split out the code that copies sources into the temporary trees and
     creates Sources files from the Makefile into tools/add_source_packages
   * MAJOR CHANGE: Stop using apt-ftparchive to generate the Packages
     files on each CD/DVD; instead grab the details for each package
     directly from the Packages file in the archive. MUCH MUCH faster,
     and uses less code too. Affected scripts:
     + tools/scanpackages now just generates Release files. argv[1]
       used to be "scan" or "install", but no longer used
     + tools/add_debs slightly simplified - old code removed
     + tools/add_packages now dumps out Packages file fragments as each
       .deb and .udeb is copied into the temporary trees
     + WARNING: Any uses of the "before-scanpackages" hook may now
       break - shout if you're affected.
   * Fix the new Packages file generation to cope with LOCAL packages
     too. A simple change to add checking for /local/ ; hopefully it
     will do the trick.
   * Use "|" rather than "/" as a sed separator in the etch boot-amd64
     and boot-i386 scripts. Closes: #342344
   * Add the ppptp-linux package to CD#1. Quick hack adds this from the
     Makefile for now; FIXME later... Closes: #255367
   * Minor change to correct the README - BASEDIR var means we don't
     have to cd to /usr/share/debian-cd/ any more. Closes: #280191
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Update base-etch with current debootstrap, and also update the recipe to
     create it due to changes in debootstrap.
   * Remove exim4 from the netinst CDs by adding further insane cruft to the
     insane cruft already in the Makefile. (debootstrap no longer installs an
     MTA, so this should save some useful space on the netinsts)
   * Remove lvm10 from generate_di+k_list, d-i uses lvm2 now.
   * Audited all the apt-install commands in d-i, and added these packages
     to generate_di+k_list: pcmciautils, dosfsutils (barely needed),
     udev, installation-report, palo, elilo, sibyl, sibyl, colo, powerpc-utils,
     silo, vmelilo.
     Some of the bootloaders were alredy included via debootstrap, but as they
     are being removed from there, it's better to add them explicitly here.
   * Remove iso-codes from netinst, not used.
   * Drop floppies from i386 netinst and businesscard; this will make the
     netinst small enough to fit on 128 mb usb keychains again.
   * Deal with 386 -> 486 name change in kernel images.
   * Exclude ttf-cjk-compact-udeb.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Cope with mipsel boot images moving location. Closes: #349563.
   * Make sure that all the scripts use Packages.gz rather than Packages
     when looking up metadata in the archive - Packages is deprecated.
   * Cope better with badly-formatted stanzas in Sources.gz
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Exclude reiser4progs udebs from CD, since there is no reiser4 in the
     Debian kernel.
   * Exclude libreiserfs0.3-udeb from CD, no longer used by parted.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Add an initial copy of boot-amd64.calc for etch
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * For etch, pick up the installation guide from the appropriate
     package in the archive rather than from the d-i area.
   * Add missing envvar checks in tools/generate_di*_list scripts.
   * arm: risc* flavours are no longer built. Closes: #351818.
   * Martin Michlmayr has temporarily taken over daily d-i builds for mips
     from Thiemo Seufer.
   * Kyle McMartin is now taking care of HPPA daily builds.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Switch alpha to 2.6 kernels.
   * Add linux-image-2.6-footbridge and linux-image-2.6-s3c2410
     arm kernels as d-i now uses these.
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Fix the environment variable checks in tools/generate_di+k_list.
   * Update the boot-sparc scripts to improve the algorithm for finding
     the right version of silo to use - grab the filename from the
     appropriate Packages file rather than looking in the silo
     directory in the pool.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * generate_di+k_list: Switch initamfs generator to per-arch,
     based on what base-installer installs:
     - initramfs-tools on i386, amd64, alpha, powerpc, arm
     - yaird on hppa, ia64, mips, mipsel, sparc, m68k
   [ Sven Luther ]
   * Added icon to powerpc/chrp bootinfo.txt, which will allow booting on IBM
     RS6K and pSeries. Closes: #352672
   [ Steve McIntyre ]
   * Mipsel boot images haven't actually moved yet in etch. Cope with this
     - fall back to the old location if the new one isn't there.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * generate_di+k_list:
     - switch to initramfs-tools by default for hppa
     - include openssh-server; is installed when network-console is used
     - add libsysfs1; is not included otherwise because the udeb provides it
