From what is public visible, the security team has lost at least one
of the active members to ubuntu with no replacement up to today. And
d-i's effort is practically wasted since we decided for d-i because we
needed to support more architectures. If we had thrown out the
doorstops years ago, we could simply have taken one of the readily
available installers without rolling our own.
