Sorry, are you referring here to something other than the seemingly
near-constant parade of powerpc users buying Sven's line of crap and
subsequently disrupting development on the debian-boot mailing list?  That's
the only poisoning I see going on here.

It has already been explained that the bug at issue here has not made it
into a debian-installer release candidate because there hasn't *been*
a d-i release candidate yet using the 2.6.18 kernel.  Claiming that the
installer team has wronged Debian's users by not releasing such an update,
when we are still missing a releasable kernel, are beyond the pale.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
