dealing with the install-reports

# We need to try to make some sense of the install-reports for d-i, so
# here is a pass through them, cloning off bugs and closing any that
# seem to only mention done issues. I have not tried to verify all the
# bugs, so if these mention done issues, just close them.
# I only went back to the beginning of august, since it then becomes
# harder to remember what earlier problems are still problems. I have
# also closed some of the very old install reports. If this turns out to
# be useful, I can try to do the remainder of the install-reports later.
