diskless package not in update_excuses?
Maybe it is because it is listed in "Problems in unstable":
* Binaries from diskless 0.3.10 cannot be installed:
I think there are several issues:
1. these packages are "Architecture: all", why is i386 not listed?
2. Why is diskless "not installable" anyway, I have never had any bug
reports... Perhaps this is a debconf issue?
3. diskless-image-* are only designed to be installed on an NFS-root
image directory. Is this going to be a serious problem trying to get
them into testing? This is required in order for apt-get to
automatically upgrade the package.
If this *is* going to be a problem, I have a possible solution:
include the diskless-image-* packages in diskless, and have diskless
somehow responsible for upgrading image directories to the latest
version, but I want to consider my options first. (what is the best
way that a script can determine if a package needs to be upgraded or
not, without apt-get?)
