I hope I have sucessfully done the work for the status of the installer
on early febuary.  To extract the relevant information from the packages
maintained in the debian-installer repository, use the "viewchanges"
script in the "scripts" directory.

As other packages producing udebs that are not maintained by the
debian-installer team should also be looked at, browsing
packages.debian.org for the debian-installer section is also one way to
do it.

We are currently speaking about the release announcement for d-i beta1,
so it is focused on d-i itself.  AFAIK, the release team will coordinate
the writing of the release notes for the "whole Lenny"; d-i release
announcements should help them doing so.
