Unfortunately the most help I can offer is an hour or so of my time
testing an installer every few days.
I have huge amounts of my own stuff to get done, including a day job,
running an ISP in my "spare time", my Debian duties as they exist
already, my duties to my family and personal life, and then all the rest
I'm really quite worried about d-i now, so I'll try and put aside more
time to help with testing it, but I doubt I could get up to speed and be
useful developing for it within two months, possibly more.
As another comment, many of the dialogs seem incredibly poorly worded,
often in very broken english, sometimes making no sense at all. Also
sometimes the 'Go Back' button appears, but cannot be highlighted
through any means I have tried.
If there is someone in the UK, preferably in Cambridgeshire, working on
d-i, who would like me to sit with them as a 'user' and demonstrate the
issues with the installer, I'd be glad to. As it stands, I am not sure
I'll have the time to help anywhere near as much as I should anyway.
