Yes, I did. Sorry, it's been a _very_ long couple of days, without
much sleep in the middle and I've been getting defensive and rude when
I shouldn't have been. Apologies. It gets very frustrating in these
situations when a long task that normally works with minimal
intervention suddenly needs a lot of attention. Things seem a lot more
under control now, and I'm slowly working my way through the rest of
the arches to help Phil. This shouldn't have turned into a flaming
match - again, I'm sorry. I don't want to fall out over this...

Can I ask one favour for in future, though - if any more changes are
made in future to core tools like silo, mkisofs etc. that will affect
CD/DVD image generation, can you please give us just a little bit of
warning? At the moment, without the information about the new isofs.b
you gave me a way back up this messy thread, we wouldn't be able to
make working (bootable) sparc images for sarge or sid.

On that front, how is the sparc end of the debian-installer work
