[ I'm adding -release@ to the loop. I tried to refrain from mentioning my concerns in the Jessie Beta 1 announce, that's why I used a quite neutral wording, but let's be honest: kfreebsd-* is looking bad right now. ] Cyril Brulebois <email@example.com> (2014-08-14): > Steven Chamberlain <firstname.lastname@example.org> (2014-08-13): > > Some new installer components have appeared since wheezy, such as > > partman-iscsi, which is arch: all.

To expand a bit on my earlier reply: that wouldn't be the first partman-* package being uninstallable. See the edos/dose reports (table or graphs): http://d-i.debian.org/edos/#unstable http://d-i.debian.org/edos/graph-unstable-kfreebsd-amd64.png http://d-i.debian.org/edos/graph-unstable-kfreebsd-i386.png > I'm also quite astonished about being the one reporting that.

FWIW the current state of d-i on kfreebsd-*, along with unfixed (not even replied to) serious bug reports in kfreebsd headers (#750836, #756553), and upgradability issues (kernel removal, #756464) kind of get me worried about kfreebsd-* releasability for jessie.
