yes, np. I'll try to have these done by this weekend.

I don't think its very likely that amd64/sarge will be added to
debian.org, but this is a good question for the amd64.debian.net
The next point release of sarge will have a kernel ABI change which
will break net install flavors of d-i. We are preparing an updated
d-i to go along with this release - does the amd64.debian.net project
wish to follow suit?
I have an interest (job-related) in seeing amd64.debian.net track
sarge point releases, so if there is a desire but lack of resources,
please let me know.
