Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-kickstart

A wishlist item:

From http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/s1-kickstart2-packageselection.html

  Ignore the missing packages and groups instead of halting the installation to ask if the installation should be aborted or continued. For example:
  %packages --ignoremissing

Colin,

Does the Debian equivalent of --ignoremissing exist?

Sort of. It probably doesn't have quite the same semantics, and it's not
hooked up in a preseedable way at present; this bug report is open on
kickseed as a reminder to do that at some point.

Is this wish still open, I wonder cause it is nearly 6 years old.
Is there really no --ignoremissing (or something similar) in kickstart for ubuntu?
