I'm waiting on final instructions on how to make them... Can you tell us
where the i386 images are, so people can mirror/test them please?

Yep, sounds right.

That's correct.

Wichert and I had a discussion about this at the end of last week. The
official images should not have non-US on them - it makes life easier for
people in the US, plus the licenses are a _mess_ and it's easiest to leave
well alone for now. The plan is to split non-US into main/contrib/non-free
soon, but too late for slink.
