Thanks for the pointer.
I missed to take notice of the paragraphs 4.5 and 4.6 among the other stuff
that mainly deals with making a Live system.
Let's see whether i can flatly point to them:
"4.2 Downloading prebuilt images" is too sparse and also points to more
adventurous places than https://www.debian.org/CD/live/.
Current state in JigdoOnLive:
There are no verification instructions.
One could use paragraph "Using GPG to Verify the Authenticity of Live CD
in that page would create a linkable URL of that paragraph.
But i think that the indicator sentences
gpg: Signature made Wed 21 Jun 2017 03:45:45 AM CDT
gpg: using RSA key DF9B9C49EAA9298432589D76DA87E80D6294BE9B
are not very good.
Not all gpg versions tell the full key fingerprin that way. gpg 1.4.18 says
gpg: Signature made Sun 05 Jun 2016 05:59:09 PM CEST using RSA key ID 6294BE9B
Worse: Both versions of gpg says this with good and bad SHA512SUMS alike.
In JigdoOnLive i propose to look for
gpg: Good signature from "Debian CD signing key <email@example.com>"
Primary key fingerprint: DF9B 9C49 EAA9 2984 3258 9D76 DA87 E80D 6294 BE9B
"4.5.1 Burning an ISO image to a physical medium" and "4.5.2 Copying an
ISO hybrid image to a USB stick" are Unix-only.
As proud as i am of xorriso, it cannot burn optical media on MS-Windows
or MacOS. Also i wonder whether Cygwin or WSL would support that "cp"
In JigdoOnLive i point to four paragraphs of the debian-cd FAQ:
Have a nice day :)
