It appears that there was a glitch with the popcon.debian.org when we
were preparing the installer images on Saturday. We use the output
from popcon to control ordering of packages on media, after the
installer and core packages are placed. This means that the exact
ordering of packages for 9.2.0 will have shifted quite a bit compared
to 9.1.0 I'm afraid.
