the last release was announced on this list:


i haven't worked on it much since then.

i tested it using tools and build environment from sarge, with the exception of
debpartial-mirror 0.2.11.

stable svn (i.e. released as part of a package):

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-np/trunk/packages/simple-cdd

development svn is:

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-np/people/vagrant/simple-cdd

the only difference at the moment is that one has minor updates to some
of the example profiles.

it probably makes more sense to move it into the debian-custom svn, but
i haven't gotten around to that yet.

well, i've released several functional CD images with it, as have
others. so it's probably a lacking in the documentation department.

sorry i haven't had much chance to work on it more- i'd like to try and
get it working with etch and packages into the official debian.org archives.

i'll hopefully have some free time during debconf6 in mexico to work on it 
more as well as other debian-custom related stuff.

live well,
