netboot images are, IIRC:


Joey, indeed we probably need to be clearer, especially in this
testing time, about what should be tested. I must admit that I'm lost
myself..:-). So I hope I gave the correct answer above.

For instance, I always have to think whether I have to test the
sarg_d-i images or the sid_d-i. From the explanations you already gave
me dozens of times, I conclude that before releases, we have to test
the sarge_d-i as they're built with udebs from sarge. But, I suspect
that currently both sarge_d-i and sid_d-i are really close.
