I think it's a good idea to do beta releases more regularly and it
definitely makes sense to base the next beta on the 2.6.24 release
which will also be used for etchnhalf. At the same time, I'm a bit
unhappy because 2.6.25 will finally have support for the Orion (ARM)
platform which I'd like to support in d-i soon, and putting out a beta
based on 2.6.24 will delay Orion support quite a bit.
Given we're doing a beta based on 2.6.22 now, how quickly could we get
another beta based on 2.6.24 out? Can you be done relatively quickly
after the beta based on 2.6.22?
Another solution would be to backport Orion support from 2.6.25 to
