As I already mentioned some days ago on this list:


I use reprepro and a script called cddt-fakeapt to build my CDD package pool.

In fact I use reprepro to maintain a local pool and to mirror the Debian
packages I want to include on the CDD (the packages are taken from debian
stable, from the debian-security repository and from my local pool).

I've updated and reorganized the cddt-tools package and now it includes an
example of how to build a partial mirror using my tools.

The documentation has been written quickly and I'm sure that the scripts may
have bugs, but if you want give it a try install the cddt-tools package from:


Or get the code from the svn repository:
