Yeah, splitting up resources just at the point when Debian-Installer
finally seems to come along nicely. It took ages to find porters for
d-i, I hope they don't turn back to boot-floppies now.
Nothing against improved/bug-fixed versions for woody point-releases,
but I don't agree with doing this "let's get back to boot-floppies"
stunt for a second major release in a row.
Of course, I haven't contributed to boot-floppies in any way, so this is
just my opinion/advice. Feel free to ignore it.
