Sparc is slightly broken. A new console-tools was uploaded Wednesday,
dinstall, as usual, deleted the old binary-all "console-tools-data"
package, breaking console-tools on the sparc. I didn't notice this
until I ran slink_cd late friday night.
I've uploaded a sparc binary for the console-tools that is currently
in slink (for all of the other architectures.)
So, when do you want a CD image. Assuming the other archs have
stopped uploading new stuff, the last thing we _need_ for sparc is for
console-tools to be installed from incoming into the distribution.
Now depending on how rushed we are for time, I can merge this into my
mirror manually and generate the CD images, or I can wait till it is
installed on master and then rsync and generate the CD images.
(Assuming that dinstall picks it up today, it will be 1800 EST or
later - dinstall runs at 1500 EST and "masterfiles", a long process,
runs after dinstall is done.)
