Sounds good. I've been informed that Arm boot-floppies will be lagging a
bit (until next weekend), which is a bit annoying, but if everything else
can be ready-ish in a few days that's pretty decent.

There's still some removals, a couple more updates, and some more recompiles
to be done yet.

The only thing that seems really worrying at this point is new gpm
installs, but I guess that can be fixed in parallel to b-f's.

Note that there's a new sysvinit waiting to go into potato, and we might
also end up with a new util-linux. These shouldn't affect boot-floppies
too much, beyond a final build when they're updated.
