All seems reasonable, yes.

OK, cool. If we can get all the boot floppies sorted for then, I'll
happily get those images building myself on www.uk.debian.org, the machine
that used to be cdimage.debian.org. Phil Hands sais he's happy for this to
happen, but there are bandwidth problems in advertising this machine to
all and sundry. We don't want a /. effect here... Mirrors, anyone? There
will be four images per arch, so a full mirror will need approx. 12GB of
disk for the arches sparc,i386,m68k,alpha. And we need those mirrors to be
ready to go at release time, of course.

Can we push it forward a day, to make it Monday 1st March? It seems, well,
