Re: Announcing the first release of potato boot-floppies

To: The Testing Group

Take a look at the end of this posting for an update on the URL for
finding the newest set of boot floppies. At least three people have
checked in at this posting, so we have enough people to start taking a
crack at this. This doesn't mean that the rest of you lurking out there on
debian-testing shouldn't speak up and take a whack yourself ;-)

To: Marcel Harkema

Thanks for the update! As you can see, I have passed it on ;-)

Could you be sure to CC the testing group on all such announcements from
here on out? I don't really need to act as middle man in the information
exchange, do I?

The Testing Group will get started trying out your new "baby" right away!

To: Everyone who has not gone to sleep or wandered off because of the
    length of this posting ;-)

I'm getting into a car, in about an hour, to go to Orlando this evening. I
have my account there already activated, so I will be online tomorrow, no
sweat. I may even have enough time to test these new boot floppies ;-)

Wish me luck,
