osposweb replied with: the program gives options to alter all sources of
packages except the "backports"
same here! so i think it's same issue
Issue 1: backports customizations are not enabled for live-build

Regarding the Debian mirrors: as I understand, Debian nowadays has
reduced the configuration for finding the mirrors, by using
deb.debian.org for all current releases, architectures and geographical
locations. The backports for stretch are there [2], and all geographical
locations can use the same URL [3].
Yes, forgetting about jessie which play off soon .. affects future compilations of live build
However, if you need to add other repositories, the manual at section
8.1.5 [6] states that you need to add specific files:
config/archives/your-repository.list.chroot and/or
config/archives/your-repository.list.binary. Within these files you can
write lines with the same syntax as you would do in /etc/apt/sources.list.
THIS WORK ONLY FOR CHROOT! must work for all the stages!
(Note that I still have not touched chapter 8 of the manual, there are
still some old references to alioth.debian.org.)
So for getting access to other repositories, you should use these files,
and not one of the command line options.
About older references, i can open a new bug reports for.. but for now, this issue are only related to allow to customize backports mirrors
I have tested backports with:
lb config --distribution stretch
echo "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main" >
echo "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main" >
The backports are available, but grep is still at 2.27-2 instead of
3.3-1~bpo9+1. So I did not correctly configure apt pinning.
BAD MADE the pinning works but in some stages does not sync with chroot installed

In any case, i want to use different mirrors for backports due bandwith usage behind firewalling

Issue 2: Building a live image for jessie
Well in this case i there's too much work forgett, due as i exposed:
i want to use different mirrors for backports due bandwith usage behind firewalling
for live-strecht and future live builds

Issue 3: Unrecognized command line option
Summmary: from my personal point of view, only issue 3 remains.
all of the documentations are out of wync that resumes the "unrecognized..."

With kind regards,
Roland Clobus
