We probably need one, I added a sarge/testing config to the pool, so now
it is possible to use the sarge repository as well and upload sarge
packages there.

What about the package of Lior Kaplan?

I do not know for a reason of this, they look like they should run
in-place. But if they don't, copying them to the cur dir should be fine.

Works for me.

I still do not have a proper computer to test CDD installs on and the
QEMU machine has garbled video for me so I can't see much after the
install. I'll try to get a proper machine to test on.

It shouldn't.

If you have a problem with that hop on on irc (freenode) into channel
#debian-custom  and try to talk to vagrantc, he is the developer of
simple-cdd and he might know, or at least will know who might know.

His e-mail is: Vagrant Cascadian <vagrant at freegeek.org>
