No, this is true. Look on the mirrors. You will see 2.2.15 boot-floppies
for all archs under potato. I didn't say you.

Yes you should, and you can't because of tetex, which is a bug in tetext!.
If you filed a bug on every package that could not be installed because

inter-dependent bug reports. This isn't the case. Put blame where blame
lies, on tetex.
