Re: Bits from the Debian release team: full steam ahead towards Buster

This time, let's try not to be left behind, and get BL Lithium out right after the Buster release!

Once Helium is released (soon) I'm hoping to re-use the helium-dev experimental repo for migrated BL Helium>Lithium packages. If anyone has already any feedback on problems that arose using Helium packages on Buster it will be appreciated. I'll start a dedicated thread in "development" soon.

Re: Bits from the Debian release team: full steam ahead towards Buster

That's good to hear - and another point on the list of to-be-announced things in context of Helium's release. wink

Edit:
If you need any help please let me know!

Keep up the great work, love BL.

Looking forward to it, I'm planning to dist-upgrade to sid once official helium is released.

Do you know, is live-build going to survive the next Debian release or will we have to transition to a different ISO build process?

Raphaël Hertzog is maintaining the live-build system so we should be able to carry on using it indefinitely (hopefully).

The Debian stretch live ISO images were actually build using a different system, I think.

Debian live isos are now built with "live-wrapper". Until there is more documentation I think we'd be better off staying with live-build, which RH, as you say, will probably keep going for us, as he uses it to build Kali Linux.
