It still mentions
"Installations in Russian (and possibly some other languages) may fail
 due to an error from aptitude; most languages seem unaffected."
If this is related to #473559 consider either removing this note
or add Japanese.

Mhm, strange. This page contains:
"Or install the current weekly snapshot of Debian testing which uses the
 same version of the installer as the last release:"

The last release was Debian Etch so I assumed that weekly snapshots
contain an older (but more stable?) version of the installer. But it seems
that "release" refers to an Installer and not a Debian release? (Even if
this is clarified I'm not sure that everyone considers beta2 as a
release but maybe only as a release snapshot or a test version (because
of "beta")). Please clarify this! I tried to address this recently in
but it seems I failed.
