Everything (except the translations, which someone else will need to
take care of, and is not a regression relative to unstable) has been
taken care of.

I'm going to merge or branch to the head of the debian-glibc CVS
repository tonight, mark 2.3.2.ds1-8 as destined for unstable, and tag
it.  Let's build it for those architectures we can, and put binaries in
~dan/public_html/glibc/ on ftp-master.debian.org, to move into unstable
