Re: Debian Installer Errata

Hi all,

I've updated the existing d-i errata [1].
Removed the fixed problem regarding RAID arrays in rescue mode.
Updated info on known non-working usb keyboard.
Added info on speakup not being configured.

I've also added known blockers:
	1 - zipl installation problem that makes s390 uninstalable #519254
	2 - data corruption due to os-prober #599203
	3 - problems with yaboot for powerpc #589701

I've ommited:
	4 - apt problem due to empty indexes #600852
as affects the building process and not the installation itself.

Feel free to review, comment and suggest improvements.

Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
