As a poor simple user, this seems mistaken.  Correct me if I'm wrong,
but isn't it the case that d-i quickly comes out once a kernel is in
*testing* so the problem with "d-i dragging" is really that the kernel
team doesn't support testing only unstable (from the sounds of it).  I
mean in another email max says that testing is on an unsupported
kernel.  WTF.  .24 isn't that old and I'm not sure if .25 is even in
testing yet (when I last checked it wasn't).



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
