Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 CD/DVD images updated (r0a)

This is an update to the CD and DVD images of Debian 3.1r0.

A bug has been discovered in the CD and DVD images of Debian 3.1r0: new
installs from these images will have a commented-out entry in
/etc/apt/sources.list for "http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates"
rather than an active entry for "http://security.debian.org/
stable/updates", and thus will not be configured to get automatic
security updates with apt. Debian 3.1r0a corrects this issue.

If you have already installed a system using a 3.1r0 CD/DVD image, you
do not need to reinstall. Instead, simply edit /etc/apt/sources.list,
look for any lines mentioning security.debian.org, change "testing" to
"stable", and remove "# " from the start of the line.

If you installed other than from a CD or DVD (for example, netboot, or
booting from floppy and installing the base system from the network),
you are not affected by this bug.

No packages have been changed in this revision; only the CD and DVD
images have been changed. There have not yet been any security updates
to Debian 3.1.
