Best would be if debian-cd would take it, so that it can be adapted when
the repository format in the ISOs gets changed. It could be renamed to
e.g. "debian-cd-merge-isos" and become a separate "binary" package from
the debian-cd source package.
I would of course be willing to help with maintaining it.

But first it needs more testing, especially whether the resulting ISO
lacks anything that an ISO-1 from debian-cd with the same packages has.
Zhang Boyang posted a comparison in
about which i ponder:

- Shall the script create a new /.disk/mkisofs ?
  The used xorriso run has few similarity with a xorriso run from
  debian-cd. The pool content and package lists have no influence
  on the xorriso run of debian-cd.
  So it might be better to stay with the original.

- There are some /firmware files missing in the merged ISO. Like
  They are in the pool of DLBD-1. But how did they get into /firmware of
  Zhang Boyang's CUSTOM(all-in-one) ? (Or: Why aren't they in /firmware
  of DLBD-1 ?)

I hope that the script is sufficiently stable against bad arguments and
bad combinations of ISOs. At least i inserted a lot of error messages
and took care to trigger each of them.
Nevertheless, it should be tested independently of me whether it can be
tricked into destroying existing data on disk or leaving temporary files
on disk.

Have a nice day :)
