Something is wrong in the daily build process for debian testing netinst and businesscard images
Interestingly enough, though I first discovered this on the "powerpc"
it's not unique to the "powerpc" -- the same thing seems to be
happening for "i386".
Looking at the DebianInstaller/FAQ - Debian Wiki question 29 takes us
Q: What types of media are available? What versions are available?
Where to download?

Note the respective dates of the MD5SUMS file and the ".iso" images!
The MD5SUMS file contains:
There is nothing for the businesscard image! Not that it matters,
because when you download the netinst image, its md5 checksum doesn't
match the one given in the MD5SUMS file. Which is not really
surprising given the respective dates.
If this is not the right place to get daily testing images, then the
links should be changed -- and incidentally, what *is* this directory
If it is the right place to get daily testing images, then the build
process is broken and ought to be fixed.
