[Freedombox-discuss] Build the Freedombox images using the Debian unstable/sid packages?

Today I changed the git source for freedom-maker to store the Debian
mirror and suite in the Makefile instead of the
bin/mk_freedombox_image file, thus grouping almost all setup in the
toplevel Makefile.

To build with the latest fixes that is currently only available in
Debian unstable, apply this change to the freedom-maker source:

diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile
index 8fd6cdd..4255d2c 100644
--- a/Makefile
+++ b/Makefile
@@ -2,7 +2,7 @@
 # Where to fetch packages
 # armel amd64 i386

In a few days the latest fixes should be available in Jessie too.  But
perhaps we should build the current test images using unstable, to
detect problems earlier and be able to test fixes sooner?  When things
stabilize more, we can start building from Jessie instead.

Happy hacking
