Bug#284082: Incomplete entry in the errata of rc2

Please don't file RC bug reports about the WEB SITE on the
debian-installer pseudo package. We have a pasudo-package for the web
site, and the d=-i psudo package is abused enough as it is, and huge
time sink for me to reassign all the crap that is assigned here to the
correct package.
