Bug#69154: boot-floppies: simplify Debian mirror selection
"ADC" == Adam Di Carlo <email@example.com>
Me> The installer requires you to enter the entire name of your

ADC> Unfortunately, adding this information to the Potato

Fine. It's a wishlist bug, notice. I don't expect the Potato
installer to be fixed -- I'm not even convinced it *is* fixable --
but I'm concerned about the future.
ADC> I agree it would be nice but it's not likely to happen.
ADC> It should be addressed by a future installer, however,
ADC> say, for woody.
Absolutely, and that was my point in filing the bug in the first
ADC> Closing this bug.
Reopening this bug. If there's a separate woody installer package
in the BTS, then please reassign the report to that package.
Behind the counter a boy with a shaven head stared vacantly into space,
a dozen spikes of microsoft protruding from the socket behind his ear.
