 * MD won't be more broken that it currently is.
 * Automatic activation should be done for both MD and LVM.
 * Commit after more tests by Jérémy on the LVM side.

 * Should be committed to the SVN repository.
 * Should be documented in the manual.

 * Simple change.
 * If it breaks serial installations, digress will tell us.

Don't include:

  * Changes in wpasupplicant have not received a freeze exception by the
    release team.
  * Needs measure on memory impact.
  * Should received wider testing.

netcfg needs some cleanup and overall improvements.  Let's wait until
Lenny is released to work seriously on it.

 * Switching to 2.6.26 means another round of kernel uploads, so no
   extra work.
 * But first need a patch against hw-detect to queue atl2-modules
   package installation on the target system.

 * Really improve usuability.
 * More than enough time to NACK changes.

 * Add to the default initrd.
 * Need libvte9-udeb to be available (already ACKed by release team).

 * Last review was positive.
 * Jérémy will do the merge with his changes for partman-md.
 * Otavio will take care of kernel-wedge changes.

Include (but only beep on *released* installation media):

 * This needs to be a configurable in the build system.
 * Samuel should propose a patch.

>    (Grégory Oestreicher)


 * Patch is fairly complex but most issues have been sorted quickly.
 * Add two new strings.
