So, security EOL for lenny has now passed.  We're in sync with the
security archive and the only missing packages are
openjdk-6/{alpha,ia64} and opie/{arm,armel}.  AIUI the chances of those
ever building are remote but, given that we've nothing to lose we might
as well go ahead and accept them in to o-p-u and see what happens[tm].

I can't see any outstanding o-p-u package bugs in the BTS.  If there's
any I missed on the list, please yell.

-kernel, -boot - were there any plans for a final kernel and/or d-i
upload for lenny?  If so we need to get those sorted asap.

In terms of scheduling for the point release itself, the current
suggestions are:

25-26/2 - Steve's not available for CDs

3-4/3 - Cambridge BSP.  Should be do-able as long as I can get decent
connectivity at the right time. :-)

10-11/3 - Joerg mentioned he's not available on the Sunday, but that's
only really an issue if stuff breaks and it then transpires that Mark's
also unavailable to help fix the world.

Thoughts / preferences / anything I missed?
