Well, I just put the i386 ones in the public area on cdimage when Anne
Bezemer pointed out that the "unofficial" in the README was still
there (apparently the change never made it into CVS), so I'm going to
start generating the images again (there was a slightly suspicious
warning message in the typescript, so I'd be happier with another run
at it anyway).

The only differences between the published images, and the ones I'm
about to make should be the README and apt-setup docs, but the ones
that are currently under the 3.0r1 directory are NOT official.

This leaves me with a problem --- should I rename the next ones
(3.0r1a perhaps, which seems to be what is in the Release file anyway)
or simply overwrite them?  Given that they were publicly visible for a
few hours before I realised that they needed to be regenerated, there
might be copies of them out there already, so perhaps it's best to
rename them.

Admittedly, I've not signed the MD5SUMS yet, so they don't count as
official anyway, and I doubt it will injure anyone seriously to have a
slightly outdated README, so perhaps I should just overwrite them when
the new images turn up in a few hours.

Anyway, the files that are not to be considered released are the ones
dated around Dec 18 22:15 GMT.  Feel free to play with them, but
please don't rush out and produce thousands of copies and label them
"official" because they're not.

Cheers, Phil.
