You're right, I was being redundant on the next line, with the cp. I had sed strip the path, then I added it on the very next line. Not efficient at all.

I'll write that up this evening once we're settled on the actual code patch :)

I'm fine with that, though /keys-added/ may be sufficient and would more brief. I'm quibbling, I know.

The littlest details make the difference between good and great and I believe that there is no need to apologize for achieving greatness. I'll get off of my soap box now ;)

Can we settle on this?

# add any 3rd party repository keys that you may need installed into the NFSROOT

	"cat $f | $ROOTCMD apt-key add -"
