 * missingpkglist is generated by comparing the list of packages on the CD with the list of wanted packages.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic...

This is in the very early stage of something which should become a howto to understand the build process of the Debian Edu (install) cd - please help to improve it. I will do so too, on my way to eternal wisdom and happyness :-)

  • tasks comes from debian-edu svn
  • wantedpkglist*.txt is generated from tasks
  • wantedpkglist is given to debian-cd to populate the cd
  • missingpkglist is generated by comparing the list of packages on the CD with the list of wanted packages.

debian-cd

the code for the version of debian-cd we're using is at /home/builder/src/debian-edu/src/build/CD-administrator/debian-cd

During every build it's patched by debian-edu/src/build/CD-administrator/patch-debian-cd with debian-edu/src/build/CD-administrator/debian-cd.patch

If you want to exclude certain packages from the cd, there is a exclude-etch list (also used for etch-test) in that patch.

famous last words

... and any technology distinguishable from magic is not sufficiently advanced!
