branch2repo provides the glue to allow the assets from several repositories on salsa to be combined into one aptly repository. This can be used to build ISO images that enable unreleased versions of udebs (and debs for that matter) to be tested without the contributor needing to learn all the complications involved in building debian-installer.

I intend this talk to be a run-through of how this works, and a demonstration of what it allows in addition to the normal salsa-ci pipeline (on which it is built).
