Subject: live-helper: Building a sid rescue image fails
Date: Thu, 04 Jun 2009 08:43:44 +0200
Package: live-helper
Version: 1.0.4-1
Severity: normal

/usr/share/live-helper/lists/rescue refers to the packages paketto and sing,
which aren't available in sid any more. This causes lh_build to fail, if
lh_config has run with -d sid and -p rescue.
I had to manually remove the specific lines.
