Indeed, I have been planning to do that for a very long time, but
interrupting any Debian activity did not help in the matter.

Hopefully, now I can manage some Debian time, so I will update,
say this week, the package and any bits of d-i necessary for it
to work. Here, I am mainly thinking about RAID, LVM, and crypto
installations in yaboot-installer, as upstream did some changes in
yaboot about them.

I miss some physical 64-bit hardware to test it, mainly access to
pSeries, but I guess people on this list will be able to test d-i
images before I can submit changes, won't they?
