I cannot accept your patch as-is. Because it's brute-force, a directory is not neccessarily a non-volatile file. Can you give me any hints how to distinguish between volatile and non-volatile directories? Maybe the same as it's done for for other d-i files, by regex, so "|/dists/.*/installer-[^/]+/[0-9][^/]+/images/.*" // d-i stuff with revision means frozen contents and "|/dists/.*/installer-[^/]+/[^0-9][^/]+/images/.*" // d-i stuff but not containing a date (year number) in the revision directory (like "current", "beta", ...) is volatile? (those regexps are already defined, I just need to change your patch to make them applicable to directories) Also, what's your deadline? I was planing to release a new version of ACNG in a couple of days anyway. Do you also need it in backports? Best regards, Eduard.
