fwiw, the packages in o-p-u right now which contain udebs are freetype,
libpng and openssl.  Those all appear to be used in the gtk initrd at
least (openssl only on some architectures) although I'm not sure if that
makes a difference to whether we want to do a respin.

Assuming the technical side still works, I do worry a little that a new
DSA three weeks after the announced EOL for security support might
confuse people.

I suppose we could do a last-minute kernel update via o-p-u, although I
don't know if we have any idea how many people actually upgrade to EOL
point releases in the relatively short period before the move to

Phil: any thoughts / preferences?
