The D-I team may remember that we had similar problems to install Sarge after the release of Etch. I spent a LOT of time back then to fix the issue and had a new release of D-I ready in July, only to find that the SRMs never released my oldstable updates until end of December, despite the fact that they were aware of the issue. Obviously that experience has left me completely unmotivated to make the same effort this time. It's someone else's turn.
