  repo as shown in tests/simple.ks stops install

Status in kickseed package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  It is hard to decide for me if this is the correct place for this
  "bug", but as it took some ours of testing, I thought it's worth to
  put this information somewhere.

  In tests/simple.ks there are some lines starting with "repo", which I tried to use in my config. 
  The lines do not work like this. In the option "baseurl" the "deb" is missing. 

  The repo.sh preseeds "apt-setup", BUT also "base-installer" !

  In "apt-setup" the "deb" is cut of and added again before it is
  written to sources.list. This is documented in the "changelog" in an
  entry from 2008.

  BUT in "base-installer", which runs before "apt-setup" and installs
  the base system, writes the "baseurl" directly as is to the
  "sources.list". Which obviously only works if the "deb" is not
  missing. Search for "local0" in "library.sh" of "base-installer".

  Without the "deb" an error shows up, that it can not get the kernel package. 
  base-installer: error: exiting on error base-installer/kernel/no-kernels-found

  Maybe it is easiest way to add the "deb" in the "tests/simple.ks",
  because this is somehow the docu of kickseed.

  Thanks to all, for taking care of kickseed!!
