Re-reading the announcement, this is probably by far the most important point. "Debian Installer Lenny Beta 2 released" sounds like "The 2nd beta version of Lenny is released". The work "Installer" is just mentally skipped by any reader as it is not obvious there is a special component named "the installer". So, we should probably forget about our internal jargon and say something like "Installation system" or so... On the other hand, I still remember the days of the preparation of sarge where Joey was basically saying that a beta release of the installer is indeed a beta release of Debian as, after all, installing with it gives you a snapshot of the next Debian release (the main difference being that, apart from the installer, what you install changes over time).
