I did Debian last night. The autobuilders have mostly caught up (for ia64,
hppa, alpha, powerpc, sparc. arm, m68k and mipsel -- s390 failed due to some
internal inconsistency) and you should be able to apt-get this release from
Debian unstable mirrors soon.


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
