* The "left holding the bag" release.
* Fixed hostname in file:/ URI problem. Closes: #58594
* Default contrib to true if they select non-free.
* After tasksel, now installs packages via
/usr/lib/dpkg/methods/apt/install. This handles packages that fail to
install, etc, and is already well tested since it's used in dselect.
If it returns a nonzero exit code, ask the user if they want to try again.
* Clean up dbootstrap droppings in the form of /etc/pcmcia and
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/pcmcia, which are not registered with dpkg.
