- Handle the problem mentioned on
[[listing used packages|freezable APT repository#build-manifest]]
+ - When loading the list of available packages in time-based
+ snapshots, skip symlinks that reprepro generated for us
+ (e.g. stable → jessie). Then, the generated reprepro
+ configuration will only inject the packages in dists with
+ codenames (e.g. "jessie"), and once we run reprepro to
+ generate the tagged snapshot it will create the symlinks
+ in there ⇒ tagged snapshots are usable both via "stable"
+ and via "jessie" dists.
- support for multiple architectures? needed for multiarch
that we'll have to use as soon as we want to upgrade Linux
to 4.x, see
