It's now:
     * i386:12

The three extras (pcmcia-modules-2.0.36 was removed) are:

	task-games (depends on gnuchess, which is only in woody, not in potato)

	timidity (depends on libasound1, which is only in woody, not in potato)

	timidity-patches (depends on timidity)

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
