Yes, so what?

The new release will *perhaps* fix 3 bugs present in the Debian BTS,
but for which I do not have access to the hardware to check.

I asked several times Bastian Blank to get access to a LPAR of an IBM
pSeries donated by IBM to Debian and hosted at Augsburg university,
but he does not seem inclined to provide such an access. I also tried
getting contacts at ozlabs to get such an access, then got one which
may have worked out, but this also failed in the end. This would
have allowed me to fix yaboot-installer and ofpath on pSeries which
currently fail and which will unavoidably fail with the new release.

I will *not* upload a *new* package *blindly* which may break
yaboot-installer, thus d-i, while the current package just works.
