I cloned the bug, Kurt didnt do it :)
Ahhh, sorry Kurt. Blame my ignorance for bothering you for
this thing. ;-)
As I read the bug report, there were three issues. As some were easier to fix
than others, I decided to clone the bug to reflect this. Otherwise I feared
the most critical issue would be fixed and the rest forgotten (as its a
pretty easy thing to add a build-depends :)
And as easy as it is to clone bug, it's easy to close them :-)
Well, #467650 should be against cdd-dev and it is in fact fixed
on my local hard-disk. If cdd-dev depends from apt-get this problem
is very easy to solve.
Also #468346 would be very easy to solve - we would just loose
a feature which is seldomly used.
The third bug #468345 is the hard part. I would see a solution but
I wonder whether it is _really_ a bug. The solution would be to
sync Packages.gz files into our SVN and just provide a copy of
the Packages.gz files at build time inside the debian-edu source
tarball - or at least a stripped down version. I gained some
experience to read out Packages files when building the tasks
web pages and thus I see a chance to strip down Packages.gz to
the essence we need.
Hmmm, thinking twice about it we could perhaps do even better and
do not create the debian/control file at package building time but
do this when building the debian-edu source tarball. I have to
sleep about this. So there are chances to fix this - but I'm not
convinced that this is a real bug. I'm keen on hearing comments
