Bug Description

It'd be nice if the directory one can add to aptoncd would be traversed recursively.
I tested it with a local apt-mirror and was surprised that it did not add all packages when I selected the main folder of that mirror.

Getting the same problem. Telling you what I did.

For testing I download a package and put in my ~/Desktop. Another package under ~
Now opened AptOnCD, let it to scan the cached packages. Now clicked to add more packages. Selected Folder. Now I selected /home folder as root. Now it searched the package in ~ but not in ~/Desktop

AptOnCD devs need to take care of this too. I don't think its so tough to do so. AFAIK AptOnCD is written in PyGTK. Python gives os.path.walk() method to traverse a folder in tree fashion. Hope to see it fixed.
