I started installing from a fresh mirror on a local harddisk. The mirror
doesn't include the sources branches. The installation won't proceed past
the "selecting installation medium" stage without finding
main/source/Sources, contrib/source/Sources and non-free/source/Sources.
I touched the files from /dev/tty2 to continue with the installation.
Either the files shouldn't be required (my opinion) or if they are
required they should have to be in a valid Sources format (whatever that
looks like) :) I don't think people should have to mirror all the sources
just to be able to install from binary-i386 etc..
Apart from that, I did two installations last night and I think the new
boot-floppies are much better.

> base-config (0.16) frozen unstable; urgency=low
> * Release manager: this needs to go into frozen for the same reason
> boot-floppies releases still go into frozen -- some of the bugfixes below
> can prevent installation of Debian for people, and are thus critical bug

> * Prompt for full username with medium priority, not low. Closes: #56602
> * apt-setup changes:
> - First try just adding the "deb" entry. If that succeeds, try
> adding the "deb-src" entry also, but if that fails, keep the working
> "deb" entry. Closes: #53440, #56934
> - Remove tempfiles.
> - Removed "nfs server" from list since it confused people.
> - Instead of "manual entry", I now have "edit sources list by hand",
> which just runs an editor on sources.list and tests the result, since
> many people complained the earlier interface wasn't powerful enough.
> - Changed "aptconf" to "apt-setup" in template names.
> - Added support for non-us. This is pretty rudimentry for now; it always
> uses non-us.debian.org. Full support for chosing a non-us mirror will
> be added for woody. Closes: #53439
> * Clear the screen on exit and in several places inside apt-setup
