note that we are not shipping *any* package lists today, it is 0 vs whatever tens of MB we add by removing the patch, there is no "slightly bigger"

also this patch isnt enough i think, IIRC there are other places in livecd-rootfs where the package lists are forcefully removed to make sure we dont waste space on them, please also make the product team aware before making this change, since this limits the allowed space the custom tarball can occupy.
also check if there are any developer tools that might use the deb-src entries for pulling build deps or whatnot (and add another patch to remove all teh deb-src entries). using apport-cli will be done by perhaps 1% of the users, since you need to use a terminal or developer mode to even execute it, do we really want to make everyone suffer by this instead of working out a proper solution that doesnt waste our extremely limited free space for a feature used by a fraction of users ?
