Your first mail:

I must acknowledge this is partly my fault. Releasing this beta is long
overdue (I first mentioned it in a reply to a linux upload notification
back in June IIRC); there were some technical reasons, but also some
personal reasons which led me to delay this on the one hand, and not to
announce it on the other hand.

Anyway, the end result is: I'm not going to complain if there are too
many mails on -boot@ as opposed to not enough, so don't hesitate. :)

Your second mail:

AFAICT right now, nothing went wrong; quite the contrary. I had been
experiencing the net.agent 30s hang since beginning of August when I
started getting stuff into shape. After some bits of debugging and
sharing test results (#debian-kernel), Ben and I found out that "apt-get
install systemd" was a fix, so we didn't investigate any further.

Surprisingly, the bug vanished suddenly today when I started checking
latest parted changes! Because: tada, systemd was my brand new shiny

I haven't been able to perform any testing on non-Linux, but I think I'm
OK with a release even if we finally find out that these images need a
fix at some point.

Bottom line: all good so far, just surprising. :)
