Please support (at least) amber in upstream Debian
Open, HighPublic

Description

This is somewhat related to https://tracker.pureos.net/T349 . It will be incredibly more easy for people developing for PureOS if PureOS would be supported by Debian's debootstrap (and if this would tickle down to all downstreams).

@jeremiah.foster people are stepping on this while trying to bootstrap amber on Debian - would you take a stab of trying to get this into mainline deboostrap so boostrapping pureos becomes simpler everywhere in the future? I'm happy to help here.

I agree completely and I thought actually that the "amber" dist was already upstream, but apparently not. I'll investigate and try and ensure the amber definition is in Debian's bootstrap.

that wold be so super cool since it would prevent dragging around deboostrap scripts by hand.

I've added a commen to https://salsa.debian.org/installer-team/debootstrap/merge_requests/37 . Maybe filing a bug against deboostrap (and updating the MR to close it) accelerates this?
