Apologies for the slight delay in getting back to you, and thanks for
working on this. Having reviewed the diff, I have a few comments and
- The current stable version of arcboot is 0.3.13, so I'd expect this
update to be 0.3.1_3_+squeeze1 or similar.
- Why does __ARCSBOOT_VERSION__ jump to 0.3.13?
- Please drop this change:
+ * [d2741a1] overrides: remove ./ from paths to catch up with ftp-master
ftp-master's lintian checks are only applied to uploads to unstable and
experimental, so the old override paths aren't a problem; also, packages
in stable are expected to pass a check from lintian in stable, not
necessarily from another release.
- Why was the "$(PRINT_LOADADDR)" makefile target dropped?

There's usually (well, frequently) a d-i rebuild on all architectures
for a point release in any case, if only to pull in a new kernel so that
new installs don't have to fetch it from security during the install.
