No, silo 1.2.x is still in woody. The mkisofs and silo versions I'm
now using are the woody ones, by dint of forcing things in the build
script. My development machine (the one with the mirror attached) is
running unstable, but the silo problem would have shown up there
anyway - the script to make Sparc bootable CDs grabs the latest one
directly out of the mirror. And can you please work out your
differences with Joerg and/or the mkisofs maintainer so we can get
these going again?

<sigh> Is there any easy way to check them? It would be nice not to
have to start _again_. It's becoming impractical already to make CDs
for woody due to the mixture of breakages and the sheer length of time
taken to build them; I shudder to think what sarge is going to be like
at this rate.

For now I'm going to leave the sparc images as they are. If there's no
way to test, then I'm going to wait until the boot-sparc script is
known to work. I'll work on the easier architectures first.

You raise the blade, you make the change... You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane...
