Right now, emdebian is the website and SVN - there isn't much else to
look at. The rootfs is coming along but is incomplete and a lot of work
is needed within Emdebian and emdebian-tools - particularly in using
emdebian-tools for a buildd and updating already emdebianised packages.

Well, emdebian-tools is not part of Etch - it isn't part of the stable
release, it is only part of Lenny. As emdebian-tools is only available
in Debian testing or unstable (Lenny or Sid), running emdebian-tools on
Etch is, in effect, a backport. There is no package to install
emdebian-tools on Etch.

OK, got that - thanks. It'll help with the testing of changes to the
postinst. As mentioned on the list, adding support for cdrom is not my
main priority right now.
