AFAICT there haven't been too many reports of d-i being badly broken, so
there's not much to be fixed. Here's a quick brain dump for jessie:
 - win32-loader is in the pu pipes already.
 - we might want to have hw-detect as well because acpi and friends,
   even if there's some discussion still taking place in #783247 after
   an upload to unstable.
 - it'd be nice to have a tasksel fix to allow gnome && xfce to be
   coinstalled (foo → foo | bar in depends for a single package), even
   though the fix isn't in unstable yet.
 - I see gnutls28, linux, and wpa in pu; some testing couldn't hurt.

What am I forgetting about?

(I had noted down to maybe look into #781439 and #744865 but that hasn't
happened yet.)

Besides the debootstrap pu for wheezy (already in the pipes), I don't
think I've got anything planned for wheezy.

Keeping in mind testing d-i against stuff that's in pu (notably linux)
should probably happen ahead of the release dates, let's see how much
I'm available for the said dates…
