Hmmm, I wasn't aware of this. Couldn't debian fit the last release in
total on the ftp site in a 'frozen' state for ftp users? I for one was
happy with the 1.2 release 'out of the box' and would probably not have
bothered upgrading until the next release if it had been possible extra
packages from the original release. But maybe I'm in a minority of one
here...
