You're right - the "latest news" from dpkg-multicd is from Oct 2001. I guess
I got the impression it was being worked on from something I read in the
dselect guide, without realizing how old it was. Perhaps I should
send a suggestion to the debian-doc folks to update to what the dselect
Beginner's Guide says about dpkg-multicd:
"Quite large and powerful, this complex method is the recommended way of
installing a recent version of Debian from a set of multiple binary CDs."
