No, the regular builds we do for cdimage.debian.org are just running
build.sh and making all the images that come out. Oh... Which task are
you using for the build? COMPLETE decides whether or not all the
available packages are added after the tasks are fulfilled. If you're
using the default task, then there will already be a large number of
packages queued up.

Hmmm. About 2 weeks ago from svn might correspond to the large changes
I made, moving from version 2.x to version 3.x and adding support for
multi-arch discs. Are you seeing any outout in the logfiles to say why
only one CD is being made?

Out-of-date package lists normally just means that the task lists need
to be updated. The scripts tools/generate_di_list and
tools/generate_di+k_list are there to do exactly this job - have you
tried them?

Hmmm, OK. Apologies for making more work for you - debian-cd can do
all/most of this for you, but admittedly the documentation has been
quite sparse for a long time. That's something I'm trying to fix right
now in svn.
