Can this be a problem of one (or several) individual mirrors or is the real
problem on ftp-master.d.o? (In which case I suppose a bug needs to be filed.)
Anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Thanks for your work; however I won't be committing it to CVS since I
basically don't know anything at all about debian-cd/YACS. (Haven't even
used it once ;-)

Right now I'm wondering if everything is ready for 2.2 rev1, which should
arrive "RSN". I don't have that impression. For example:
- Is the new add_packages you included the only thing to get "current-potato
  compliancy", or are other changes (w.r.t. current CVS version) needed?
  Which? Can Joey's (other?) patches be considered "official" and committed to
- Do the new (not yet uploaded AFAIK) boot-floppies require changes?
- Anything specific to non-i386 that nobody(?) is currently experimenting
- Anything that people don't like on the current Official CDs that could/
  should be changed/improved for rev1?
- ...?

(- Updated pi-makelist & updated README; has been somewhere halfway on my
   own long TODO list for quite a while..)
