Yeah, I know. That should be fixed with (a) me biting the bullet and
updating my build machine over the modular X hill and (b) the d-i and
debian-cd changes I committed over the last hour or two. I hadn't been
paying attention to CD build logs; I'll know to do so in the future.
(Until mkvmlinuz figures out how to deal with prep on >= 2.6.16, of
course, the powerpc CDs won't have prep support.)

I should think so. My main problem of late has been an excess of broken
CD drives on machines I care about (explaining why I wasn't paying
attention to the CD builds), but I need to sort that out soon anyway.
Obviously without having all the subarchitectures myself I can't do it
entirely myself, and I welcome being pointed at bug reports I haven't
noticed especially from users of those subarchitectures; but assuming
continued kernel support I should be able to keep the existing set more
or less going.
That's not to say, of course, that fresh porting blood wouldn't be a
