_i_ think you did a fine job, given the circumstance.

i don't think most people are aware of all the things that touch and
affect boot-floppies, and it is perhaps unreasonable to assume that each
maintainer _should_ be aware that they affect boot-floppies.

i think the greatest mistake was the _assumption_ that b-f is built
against testing, and thus any upload to unstable would not affect b-f,
until the package moves into testing that is.
