For historical reasons, I have a healthy disbelief in release schedules.
In any case we do need to get d-i's udev support fully sorted out fairly
urgently as 2.6.13 approaches, and that will likely involve at least
some experimentation with using hotplug instead of discover (even if
that's not the final decision); I would rather like my test d-i installs
to come up reasonably quickly while that experimentation is taking
place. If there's absolutely no way that you will accept the grepmap
patch to hotplug in the meantime then I'll retract the ITP, but I would
like you to consider it in case unforeseen circumstances cause "next
month" to turn into "six months from now".
