Fair enough. Let's make a 1.3.1.r3  release so that most of its
contents move into bo. Then I will change bo-updates to bo-untested.
That will affect the mirrors as little as possible.
Brian, you and I both go through the packages there and decide which
packages should be installed, rejected, or require further testing (ie
- remain in bo-testing). Then we compare our lists and resolve any
disagreements. After that I'll make a release.
I'll make my list tonight and mail to debian-qa.
 It will be called revision 3 because there were 2 slipstream
changes to bo. First, I removed a few packages from bo and hamm
outright - npasswd-boulder was so buggy as to be downright dangerous;
qcrack, mailpgp, and color-cal had unclear and missing copyrights, and
the maintainer ignored repeated requests to correct them.
Second, new bootdisks were added at one point. I should have
documented these changes in the ChangeLog earlier, but I will now.
