Well, if I meet my goal of building all packages in a timely manner
within a month, how would I get us into testing?

How much of this is critical for a release?  (knowing that a release
is a year away) I realize that the stable release is supposed to be
good and 'perfect', but I'm sure (with focus) in a year we could have
the cdrom part of apt, and the HDD partition tools.

I've never used dselect (I always abort at that part of the install
and apt only the packages that I need), what's broken?

What needs to be done on task packages?  I don't know anything about this.
