Manty and I have discussed this more on IRC and he's mentioned that
Joey is hoping d-i RC3 will happen soon. At the moment things seem to
be a little up in the air, so I'm planning to hang back on a debian-cd
packages release until RC3 is ready and we have a complete picture of
the changes needed in the tasks.

Joey, if this is not OK for you let me know and we can talk about this

If we do want to release before RC3, there are some possible
choices. Currently what is tagged in CVS as debian-cd_2_2_21 is the
package I tested and had ready for release yesterday. Another option
would be to take some (or all) of the changes Manty checked in
