Oops. Sorry. :)

I DO seem to have an old version, even though I got this from
a cvsroot of :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-boot
just last night. I have 2.3.0, and the version in sid is far, far

I thought I had a new version.. anyway, I just grabbed the aptable
boot-floppies package from sid, and it seems to be building much
better than 2.3.0 (that is, it's building the disks now, and hasn't
bombed yet, plus it's taking a sizable chunk of cpu time, so i'll
pipe up if it can't finish for some odd reason..)

I wonder why I got an old version from cvs?
