Currenly we all wait for Ganneff (Joerg Jaspert) to finaly do the
Sarge R2 for amd64 but aba (Andreas Barth) is close to step in as
backup ftp-admin and do it himself. Hopefully with R3 we can keep up
in a more timely fashion.

D-I changes would be welcome and a bit of work is needed there for
both sarge and etch. If possibly it would be nice to have different
mirror lists for sarge and etch/sid in choose-mirror. Since you are
intrested and seem to be involved in the D-I changes anyway it would
be welcome if you could lead the effort for amd64 and coordinate
between amd64 and D-I.

For kernel changes you should best contact fs (Frederik Schueler)
