Yep, ok by me! ;)

Ack, for my part.

OOI, are any of these dates fixed by calendar considerations?  E.g., even if
we get all the udebs in tomorrow, the debian-installer upload won't happen
until the 9th because that's the first chance anyone will have?

I'm sure the release/ftp teams will happily do whatever possible to move
things forward ahead of schedule, even if it's just to give you more slack
elsewhere in the schedule.

Sounds good to me.  It's nice to see we're getting close!
