It would be great to see progress on that, even if only on the second part. I don't think I'll get involved in thisvery much myself. For one because I don't have any hardware that's really affected (I have madwifi, but that's almost obsolete now). Jurij Smakov was asking about non-free support earlier this week though, so he might be interested to work on it with you. My own plans for beta2 are: - finish partman reorg (re-implementation of removal of crypto devices) - merge the patch that was submitted for multiple VG support in partman-auto - finish fixing udeb dependency relationships - getting rid of librt and proper solution for libgcc_s - implementing sub-level translations (Christian: still waiting for feedback on that...) - showing warnings in localechooser for incomplete translations - maybe some restructuring in localechooser (separate "area" question and state machine for go back handling) - maybe some work on choose mirror - maybe merge ext3 support into partman-basicfilesystems - some (maybe a lot) work on the manual And also: - testing with new busybox (relatime issue for example) I'd also still like to see someone pick up the following areas: - IPv6 support - dhcp client replacement - persistent device naming (I have a wild idea for that, but that involves upstream work; will probably blog about that soon) See also: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/LennyGoals Cheers, FJP
