Right now these are all we have. We are about to migrate to a new
webserver for our group. There we might have new pages if time allows
and we try to link to those from the links you gave.

Launch was early 2007 IIRC, but I'll ask the admin also.

We do use them from time to time, so yes, we now it (and congrats for
the 5th birthday) and it solves a few problems. But a few packages are
missing and usually these are too specific for backports.org, e.g.
newwer version of ipmitool among others.

Only about a few. We ruled out preseeding very early into the game
because it lacked flexibility. FAI we are using (which uses cfengine in
turn). The others I need to look into. But in principle ease of
installation was not a problem at all (after some initial testing).

Which ones specifically? About the release cycle? About deployment?
