Bug#630805: debian-cd: include apt-offline in debian CD#1

Package: debian-cd
Severity: wishlist
Tags: wheezy

I would like to request inclusion of apt-offline into Debian CD #1.

apt-offline is an Offline Package Manager for APT based systems.
apt-offline will help users with *no* internet connection to still be
able to exploit APT Package Management Features.

apt-offline also helps with offline bug reports.

apt-offline is already packaged in Debian. apt-offline is written in
Python. It has one additional dependency, python-argparse. python-argparse is
native to python with version 2.7+

apt-offline currently also embeds a copy of argparse, so the
python-argparse dependency does not really apply. The size of
apt-offline is 79918 bytes.

Please let me know if there is anything more I can do to see this be
part of Debian CD #1. I think apt-offline fits there given the nature of
the problem that it is trying to solve.
