And alpha.  We probably have a handful more rounds of bugs to squash
before we get to the point of a clean install, so it may not make the
cut for beta2, but hopefully soon thereafter.  At the very least, we
have CD images building daily.

225036 does need to be dealt with, but shouldn't hold up the propagation
of the many other packages currently waiting on php4, because php4-pear
was also unusable in woody.  Anthony, if you agree, what's the best way
to get britney to recognize this as an ignorable bug?  Perhaps I should
be (re)opening a second RC bug regarding the existing woody/sarge

GNOME in particular seems to be getting needful attention, and it
shouldn't be much longer before we have a usable metapackage for sarge
(since that seems to be one of the more common complaints of users
testing the installer, currently :).
