But I provided patches already for all the important issues you
mentioned:  #757985, #757987, #757988
and at least replied about the other, to say that it's not a blocker for
jessie release:  #757986

In case you still need me to say it explicitly, I am committed to
testing for and fixing kfreebsd d-i issues between now and release.
I'll be trying to automate some of this too (initially my own thing,
hopefully leading to jenkins.d.n integration someday).

I admit I was not doing full test installs since the d-i alpha (though I
was doing daily builds of it as part of the kfreebsd 10.1 kernel
packaging work).  I still thought it was early days to worry about d-i,
and didn't know the Beta 1 was coming.  I watched Steve's talk and I do
understand the need for this to happen now.

Thank you,
Steven Chamberlain
