Yes. But as far as 'Ignore:' is concerned, the content of the created 
Stretch USB ISO image is different from the information in 
d-e/debian/README.source, also available here:


The packages listed as ignored are not included in the ISO image.

While this is supposed to be true, I tried to find out why the 
information in README.source seemed to be wrong (and those provided in 
blends doc matched the ISO creation outcome).

Well, the information in README.source is still valid.

What differs (since Wheezy, the test DVD ISO exepted) is the ISO 
creation CONF script:

[test@star CD-administrator]$ grep -r COMPLETE= CONF*
CONF-edu-testing-nolocal-dvd.sh:export COMPLETE=1
CONF-edu-testing-nolocal-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-jessie-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-jessie-usbstick.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-lenny-amd64-i386-powerpc-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-lenny-test-amd64-i386-powerpc-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-squeeze-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-squeeze-dvd.sh:export COMPLETE=1
CONF-squeeze-test-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-squeeze-test-dvd.sh:export COMPLETE=1
CONF-stretch-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-stretch-usbstick.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-wheezy-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-wheezy-i386-dvd.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-wheezy-test-amd64-i386-netinst.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-wheezy-test-usbstick.sh:export COMPLETE=0
CONF-wheezy-usbstick.sh:export COMPLETE=0
[test@star CD-administrator]$ 

So it seems, if we want 'Ignore:' packages to be included in the USB/BD 
ISO image COMPLETE=1 should be used.
