Hello Siep and Phil,
if you use rsync in order to create a local copy there is an archive/
directory in the same directory as the installer.  In this case I
would expect that the installer assumes that it's run from a CD or DVD
and uses the archive/ directory as a package source.  This means that
there is no need to specify any repository.

This does't work with the network installer in the zip file, of
course, because the zip file doesn't contain any packages.
