Hi Francis,

-boot was just a short for "debian-boot@lists.debian.org", the address
which you sent your mail to.

This is the mailing list that's used for Debian Installer development
as well as the maintenance of all Debian Installer-related items, such
as the Installation Guide.

Sorry for being too fast in my aanswer...

I think that, if you want to bring help to the Debian Installer team,
being subcribed to that mailing list is a requirement. This can be
done on Debian lists server, aka http://lists.debian.org. The
procesure is quite straightforward, just as it is for most mailing

Please be aware that the mailing list has a an important traffic
(especially when time comes to prepare releases, etc), around 10-20
messages/day. Following the list traffic (even if not understanding
everything) is probably a good way to see how things happened, who is
doing what, etc, etc.

And, of course, in the list, you can ask whatever question you want
about our processes and stuff like this.
