I have to use some additional custom packages for one of the projects and https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/additional-software/imagebuilder#custom_packages has always worked until I've tried using it with the 21.02.0 IB downloaded from OpenWrt servers.
While the previous release image builders included the following lines:
## This is the local package repository, do not remove! src imagebuilder file:packages
The 21.02.0 image builder doesn't include it while it's mentioned in https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/1e4b191ac8901328a726ebdc09ebe35da4363521/target/imagebuilder/Makefile#L52-L53
@jow @aparcar @hnyman @tmomas we either need to change the wiki if it's an intentional change or maybe update/adjust something in the buildbots so that the local packages repository is still included in the
repositories.conf of the image builders built by buildbots.
PS. The proper
Packages.gz files are being generated within
packages/ even tho it's missing from
repositories.conf, making me believe it's an unintentional change/bug, but I didn't try to trace when did it happen. Let me know if this should be reported at https://bugs.openwrt.org/ instead.
