Add an ISO image repository.
Declined for Maverick by Sebastien Bacher
- Joelle just recently downloaded a new version of Ubuntu. However, he's really upset because he just run out of extra cdr to burn and upgrade his existing Ubuntu system. He then run synaptics and configure the repository, then he add an ISO image to the repository.
- Bryan lives from the mountain province of China, and he just recently obtained an ISO from outer-space, however, he can't figure out how to burn the ISO and he's stuck with his CD-ROM, he now just load the ISO from his hard disk and add it up in the repository.
- Juliano is a simple guy, he has a computer, and he just do simple things with it, he goes online using his P100 pesos prepaid card and a 56k modem once in a while just to check his e-mail and other social networking stuff. However, he's so devastated by the slow respond of his Ubuntu Breezy and curse the developers to hell, and start crying..., he made up his mind and said to himself "I WANT TO UPGRADE MY UBUNTU!!" 44 times, he knows it's best to upgrade to Dapper but he can't use synaptics because it would cost him P100 pesos of prepaid card to download the updates using his mere 56k modem... Instead of cursing the developers to hell, he obtain an ISO image from his friends with a USB thumbstick, and run synaptics and configured it to use the ISO as a repository. The following day, he's so happy, he committed suicide.
- Add a link that says "Add an ISO image" in the repository configuration screen that will extract the ISO image in the /var/apt/
