Bug Description

[ Description ]

Can't debootstrap raring on quantal because there is no script.

[ Test case ]

(quantal-amd64)root@iota:/home/laney/temp# debootstrap raring .
E: No such script: /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/raring
# install the new package
(quantal-amd64)root@iota:/home/laney/temp# dpkg -i debootstrap_1.0.42ubuntu0.1_all.deb
(Reading database ... 11988 files and directories currently installed.)

Unpacking replacement debootstrap ...
Setting up debootstrap (1.0.42ubuntu0.1) ...
(quantal-amd64)root@iota:/home/laney/temp# debootstrap raring foo
I: Retrieving InRelease

[ Regression potential ]

It could be that the existing script doesn't work for raring.

[ Original description ]

Well, it's time for the usual post-release/next-release fiddling.

Quantal's debootstrap needs to add scripts/raring (13.04) as a symlink to gutsy in order to support raring chroots on 12.10.

Adam, I have uploaded your debootstap 1.0.39ubuntu0.2 to precise-proposed (with raring changed back to a symlink as the patch tool cannot express symlinks).
