Well, ignoring the response from me (Message-ID:
<20060831135645.GD23864@einval.com>), but you're about right. CD
building may start a couple of hours later than you suggest, and we
*really* could do with some installation testing to make sure the CDs
with the new d-i build are correct. That won't take too long (I hope),
but I'm just warning...
