Please mark the changelog as "UNRELEASED" when you start on a new version
to make it clear to others using the SVN repo that there are changes that

I've now done so for this version.
If you add the following in ~/.devscripts and use dch, this will be done

I don't think experimental is the right choice here. I doubt you would get
anybody to actually test it from experimental. If you are happy with it, I
think you should just upload to unstable and deal with bug reports ASAP
when they come in.
I have tested the new version using a local build.
IMO the "::/" prefix that looks to be required now should be documented,
either in the pxelinux.HEAD file itself, or in a README.Debian file. I see
you've already mentioned it in NEWS.Debian, but that's for upgrades, not
to document something.
There is also an upgrade problem. It looks like when I upgrade that the
default configs do get changed, but not the actual existing configs
in /var/lib/di-netboot-assistant/, nor the generated ones under the
tftpboot directory. So after I changed my DHCP server config to drop
option 210, nothing works anymore. Please provide clear instructions how
to move from an "old" setup to a "new" one.
I tried making the changes manually, but ended up with a broken setup. Not
sure if that means the ::/ prefix does not work for me or if I missed
Could you also fix the fact that the generated
debian-installer/pxelinux.cfg/default file gets double newlines between
