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.

cd-build logs

the logs from each cd build are commited to svn (debian-edu/html/logs/cd-build-$suite.log). the commits are silent, so no commit-mail is sent.

famous last words

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