Well it's nice to see this happening. About the installer, I assume
you'll be including builds of the debian-installer package on your new
server, including the "byhand" images it generates. If those images test
out ok and you give me a url for that, I can add it to
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ where we have the rc3
release, which will probably soon be renamed to the sarge r0 release.

If you also build netinst, businesscard, full CD, and/or DVD images
against sarge, using the udebs and installer images in sarge (not daily
builds), we can also links for them to that page. And probably to the
other CD pages on the website, although that may need help from the CD
and/or web teams. It's also possible that the CD team could do these
builds for you (we've also moved to a new build server and it could
possibly add an amd64 mirror), though I haven't discussed this with the
rest of the team yet.
