(Setting Reply-to to the debian-boot list which is more appropriate.)

Because reiserfs is no longer actively maintained upstream and because 
there are now good alternatives, we have made support for reiserfs 
optional instead of standard.

To use reiserfs with daily images you need to either:
- boot in expert mode and select 'partman-reiserfs' as optional component
- boot the installer with the option 'modules?=partman-reiserfs'

I will send a general announcement of this change soon.
