Why would it break the beta ? since we should now be using the meta packages
everywhere, and the 2.6.13 should add no new dependency, the only problem i
would see is the inclusion of kernel packages in the distribution media, and
their dependencies (yaird and/or initramfs-tools). That and the d-i
kernel/installer kernel version skew which may have some problems.
Am i missing something ? I think not and the above would be enough to cause
problems, but maybe not of the 'disastrous' kind :)
