Re: help with debian-cd

First, there's the debian-cd lisrt for discussing this kind of thing.

Because it's not tested and the code is not as clean as I'd like it 
to be.

Because the standard system is not perfect and contains conflicting
package. Some other are missing ...

Yes, correctstatus depends on the status target. This has been a bit
cleaned in the CVS version, make status will automatically call
correctstatus if needed.

No, read (again) the README file.

NONUS should already be exported and should contain the non-US mirror
path. NONFREE=1 should also be exported (some scripts use this environment

Some source packages don't have any "section" field and I use 
this information in order to sort the source packages. Those warnings
are just warnings. :-) The script does still work.

Non, non-us is included on the same CDs. Non-free too (but you shouldn't
create CD with non-free anyway ;-)).

If you want this, juste do it. Create a script that does generate the list
of non-free (or non-us) packages and use this file as a task used to
select the packages you want on you CD set (just don't use COMPLETE=1 on
the make list command).

Yes, YACS does many checks in order to produce consistent CDs. And it does
ouput some information when something is missing and so on ...

It's not a bug but a feature, it's documented. :)
