I take it that's short-hand for:

   We're releasing 3.0 with unbootable sparc CDs

is that correct?

Is it considered within the aegis of debian-cd to address this by
releasing the CDs with CVS based boot-floppies (I'm not keen on this
idea BTW).

Alternatively, is there some way of making the new boot-sparc stuff work
with the latest released boot-floppies, or was there something about the
recent CVS changes that is definitely required for sparc to be bootable
on CD?  (or at all?)

Cheers, Phil.
