Bug#488257: live-helper: apt-get shouldn't fail to authenticate local packages

Package: live-helper
Version: 1.0~a47-1
Severity: wishlist


while putting some packages in config/chroot_local-packages (namely: a
custom kernel package and its aufs module package), lh_config fails when
installing the packages in the chroot:
| Need to get 9361kB/26.3MB of archives.
| After this operation, 79.2MB of additional disk space will be used.
| WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
|   kerrighed-image-2.3.0-386 aufs-modules-2.6.20-krg-2.3.0-386
| E: There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes

While I understand that blindly using --force-yes might be harmful, it
would be very nice that:
 - either the error is caught by live-helper, which then could propose
   some solutions/point to documentation so that one can figure out what
   to do to get things done;
 - or the local packages are assembled in a local repository
   automatically, and signed with a (temporary/local?) key fed to
   apt-key, so that those packages are accepted automatically w/o making
   the whole less secure.

Thanks for considering.
