Subject: debian-installer: please add easy path to bpo and volatile sources
Date: Mon, 13 Sep 2010 18:02:30 +0100
Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist


Hello,

 Today I wanted to install Debian "lenny" on a recent new machine with is not supported by debian-installer kernel in "lenny". I also tried kmuto's d-i backport, but it is bit out of date. I believe it would not be hard to ask a new debconf question on whether you want to add bpo and/or volatile sources list for the installer to pick up new kernel and packages.

Best regards,
  -- Hector Oron

Reassigning to apt-setup.

Please note that recent discussions in -devel have raised the fact the
backports are not automatically upgradable, which many people see as a
problem wrt security. This probably needs to be addressed in the
backporits repository before we think about proposing adding backports
through D-I.

Volatile could be added in a way similar to the way we currently
propose non-free and contrib, though.

However: post-squeeze, please.

volatile.d.o is now gone and updates are available in the main

accordingly.
