That should not really be needed as the D-I RM will (or at least should) just NACK any unblock requests for relevant packages. Although it could be relevant for the RT when they are asked if a change would be acceptable before uploading. I just wanted to point out that this is an added limitation on top of the "normal" limitation of "could break the current release of the installer". However, a full list of udebs (excluding kernel udebs) included in images for the current D-I release can be obtained using e.g: $ ssh merkel.debian.org $ cd /org/ftp.debian.org/ftp/dists/testing/main $ cat installer-*/current/images/MANIFEST.udebs | \ sed -nr "/^[[:space:]]/ s/^[[:space:]]*([^ ]*) .*/\1/p" | \ grep -v -- "-di$" | sort -u Note: if this command is run now the list will of course be for D-I Beta2 and not yet for RC1 as that is still to be uploaded and migrated!
