If you are the maintainer of nobootloader, and you are not allowed to commit
to the d-i svn repo, then it is appropriate to request that the d-i
maintainers deprecate the svn repo for these packages.

Of course, if you begin with the assumption that the d-i team is
unreasonable, it's only natural that you're going to run into problems...
