(And from the user's perspective, too, if she's interested in having a usable installer.) The usual "two packages that are somewhat useful" applicant (as I'd be myself, except that I don't bother at the moment), may be nice to have to debian. But people getting the installer into shape are those that Debian desperately wants and neeeds. Cheers T.
