Seems to basically work:


This will make it possible that users just do apt-get update&upgrade every
now and then and automatically get newer/fixed releases. So there is no
need to make big releases and create new SD-cards.

Well, this automatism violates good practice of providing a real changelog
(because it is constant and does not follow git commits [1]), but is still
better than nothing.

More packages/testing (and a jessie version) are to come after the

happy easter holidays,

[1] well some additional sed command could automatically insert a
    http link to the head of our git repo...
