Those probably should not be updated until nearer the freeze;  the Linux
kernel for jessie hasn't entered sid yet and that may change memory
requirements and udeb sizes a bit.

I should be able to help with that, I'll already be testing lots of
low-memory installs, in order to find a good size for the kfreebsd d-i

It's odd that there still seemed to be ~50% free memory when this
problem happened, though.  Is there some maximum size that the
linux-i386 root ramdisk can grow to?
