Is there any consensus for solutions to the individual components yet?
So the two core problems again are:
1. The provided testing installation media is often broken, missing
functionality, and at times unable to install testing itself.
2. Packages are sometimes temporarily unavailable in testing.
Here would be my approach to address #1:
0. Set up a mirror network for snapshot.d.o
a. Choose a snapshot date from snapshot.d.o
b. Build installer media using that same snapshot date for the apt
c. Optionally provide a springboard that launches into testing
instead of the snapshot
And based on Joey's thoughts for #2:
a. Create a "testing-backports" repository on cut.debian.net
b. Start uploading some packages like chromium and flashplugin
Is that it? It seems rather straightforward.
