This code definitely does not work with current ltsp versions;
ltsp-build-client was entirely obsoleted when ltsp 19.12.1-1 landed in
bullseye late 2019.

I had the impression debian-edu had switched over to the new style ltsp
as well; presumably this should be removed from debian-edu* or is it
still there for buster and earlier to be able to use the same packaging?

live well,
