What about the *massive* issues with releasing d-i due to syncing on all
arch's? What about the various arch-specific kernel issues that have popped up
and the problems in getting people to make all the necessary fixes? What about
the huge problems in getting a decently new release of X in to Debian because
of constant porting problems? What about the heavy burden on the security team?
The problems extend beyond the mirrors and the buildds.
