2.2.6 pre-release "slop" available


Let us know if it's functional, and if not, why not.

I'm pretty sure there are still network config issues.

Included is the changelog since 2.2.5.

I'm hoping to get a green or red light very soon so I can upload 2.2.6
tomorrow at a reasonable time (probably during the day, about 12 to 16
hours from now).

boot-floppies (2.2.6) frozen unstable; urgency=low

  * control: depend on python-xml (closes: Bug#56368)
  * scripts/rootdisk/strip_executables.sh renamed from strip_executables,
    some fixes
  * documentation: README-compact added, other updates
  * dbootstrap: mke2fs makes 2.0 kernel compatable filesystems by default
    -- this option can be changed when if using the 'verbose' flag; add a
    'flavor=' bootarg flag handling, and fix the rescue.bin and
    drivers.tgz setting function to use this if set; improve a few
    messages but many more still need more improvement; INFOMSG, ERRMSG,
    and DEBUGMSG were fixed so they actually work; improve the lilo
    configuration; remove dbootstrap's dependancies on busybox 
    (closes: Bug#27224, Bug#39617, Bug#31559, Bug#41901); prompt prior to
    reboot if we just partitioned a mounted disk (closes: Bug#56270);
    net-fetch flavors should work now (closes: Bug#56473); install-mbr
    invoked with args '-e -F' to disable floppy booting (closes: Bug#56821)
  * fixes in modconf and base-config improve many problems
  * i18n: Japanese, Hungarian and Russian updates
  * busybox: updates, fixes, significantly, the segfaulting ping error,
    umount, init, and syslog problems (closes: Bug#56603)
  * documentation: some updates -- documentation not completely Potato
    updated, however
  * alpha: porting updates, esp. changes to support Milo booting, fix
    library reduction on alpha (note that only alpha and i386 use library
    reduction, which is a shame)
  * rescue (i386): fix f6.txt and f7.txt issues, include f8.txt; set
    flavor properly, which fixes the 'compact' handling
  * base: remove gconv-modules
  * remove some derived files from CVS which shouldn't have been there
