Bug#704124: codename 'rc-buggy' not handled correctly

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal


it seems that apt is handling the codename 'rc-buggy' for experimental
not correctly.

When looking closer, it seems that rc-buggy is only a symlink in the
filesystem but not a codename in the 'Release' file. Please fix this

Putting debian-devel@l.d.o on CC for this bug report, as this change
might have larger impact on installations, so discussing this first
might be a good idea.


PS: I like the idea, that the remote controlled buggy from Toy Story is
the code name for experimental. I just dislike above warning.
