Ok corrected for the next version.

That's strange ... not dangerous but strange. Do you have only a single
warning like this one ?

And is your line 119 the same than mine ? 
        $cd_size += $packages{$p}{"Size"};

Yes. You have also other information about refused packages because they
are non-free/non-US and so on.

I usually do this :
make list COMPLETE=1 SIZELIMIT1=... 2>error.log | tee log

The error log is about "problems" (missing packages and so on) while
stdout explains the decision taken by the script (refusing packages
because non-free/non-us or dependency problem).

That's cool, I thought the system was not installable with those
boot-floppies because of libc problems ...

Yes that's definitely needed with some explanation put together in a
README.multicd file. The file written by Steve is not included in potato
CD built by Yacs since it does describe dselect multi-cd methods and I
think that we'll switch to apt-cdrom for potato ... also the README.arch
files are missing in $BASEDIR/data/potato.
