IMHO, announcing status and intentions on this list are all that is
required.  Boot-floppies hackers (geeze, all 5 of 'em ?) ought to read
this list.

Listing packages that will be brought in is not necessary and
distracting anyhow.

Getting it fully tested is something that others will do.

Martin, if humanly possible, please commit *something*.  I don't
really get what the strategy is... I thought we were going to rip out
the task / profiles from the CVS area entirely, and upload them as a
batch to the Debian archive itself with special naming (task-* and
profile-* perhaps).  What would be in the boot-floppies CVS area is
just the little interface to help the user select these, right?
