If you use your own mirror and modify that, you can. It's even explained in 
the d-i developer documentation how to do this, as this is a FAQ.

I completly agree, but you seem to be not aware, that we are talking about RC1 
of the debian-installer and RC1 means "Release Candiate 1". 

It's called "RC1", "testing" and "unstable" for reasons.

The only reason I care about this info in the release notes for RC1, is to 
have this issue solved (by documenting a workaround) in etch as well. In 
unstable it's fixed.


quoting http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/index.de.html#codeofconduct
"When using the Debian mailing lists, please follow these rules:... When 
replying to messages on the mailing list, do not send a carbon copy (CC) to 
the original poster unless they explicitly request to be copied."

We live in the year 2006, a few bytes wasted in the footer of a mail don't 
hurt anymore, but everybody is flooded with information and attention is a 
spare ressource. 
If you send a mail cc: to a list and to me, it will catch my attention even if 
I have none. Please don't. Unless you specifically want to catch my attention 
of course :) 
But If I don't say otherwise, I'm subscribed to the mailinglist (and this is 
true for non-Debian lists as well) and you don't need to cc: me. Thanks.
