Thats not our bug to fix and is already filed as RC. So, that point is mood 
IMO in our mail to the release team...

Is there a bug filed about this?

Again: Is there a bug filed about this?

And still, I dont consider this a blocker nor hard to fix.

bugs listed at 
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?tag=debian-edu;users=debian-edu@lists.debian.org - 
does that sound good?
