Re: Mirroring win32-loader.exe in debian/tools/

CC'ing debian-release for clarity (thread starts at

Just FYI, the Release Team NACK'ed that upload over IRC, because it's too late 
and because an upload to t-p-u cannot happen when sid and testing are in sync. 
Hence I'm stuck with those solutions (in personal order of preference):

1) convince them to allow me to upload both:
   a) a new version to unstable
   b) a +squeeze0 version to t-p-u
2) upload a minimal diff new version to unstable and get FTP-Masters do the 
byhand by hand (semi-ACK'ed by Joerg).
3) modify/enhance the d-i buildscripts to provide win32-loader.exe as a "multi-
arch component"

IMHO it is important to get this done for Squeeze, in order to provide an 
official trustful path towards win32-loader.exe (better than get.debian.net or 
goodbye-microsoft.com). (And I _know_ it's very late in the Release cycle.)
