I thought I would use this talk to announce:

 - dropping of support for new installations of i386 in favor of
 - upstart by default in Debian

Does that sound ok?

No, just kidding. ;-)

I will probably be doing a live demo of cross-building a Debian source
package using only mainline .deb packages (whether this can be done on
Debian or Ubuntu is not yet clear, it will probably depend on what happens
at DebCamp).  That, and multiarch in general, is a new, cool feature, so
perhaps that qualifies?
