Please also note that components such as user-setup-udeb, which are
generated from source packages that only have udebs (in short "core"
D-I packages), contrary to udeb provided by "regular" packages....need
to be manually approved by the D-I release manager in order to avoid
breaking D-I too much, particularly when at least one version of D-I
has been released in a given release cycle (which is still not the
case for squeeze as of now).

Automated migration to testing for udeb-only packages could be OK only
when there is no released D-I yet.
