More flexible firmware handling in debian-installer

,----[ Quote ]
| After a long break from debian-installer 
| development, I finally found time today to 
| return to the project. Having to spend less 
| time working dependency based boot in debian, 
| as it is almost complete now, definitely 
| helped freeing some time.


Recent changes in dpkg

,----[ Quote ]
| The versions 1.15.6 and 1.15.7 of dpkg 
| introduced several important changes.
| Let's skim over them:
|   * The dpkg-maintscript-helper tool has been 
|   introduced in dpkg to help 
|   packagers deal with renaming conffiles and 
|   removing obsolete conffiles. Check its 
|   manual page dpkg-maintscript-helper(1) for 
|   more details on how to use it. This shell 
|   script might be extended over time to cover 
|   other common operations. Feel free to make 
|   suggestions while it's not too late to make 
|   changes on this new interface.

| Deadlines are looming for DebConf10 - some
| have already passed. For example, the last
| day to submit a BoF (Birds of a Feather)
| talk has come and gone. There is still
| lots you can do for DebConf10 however
| including volunteering time, lending
| equipment, and even donating money.
| Sponsors and donors are needed to help
| defray the costs of holding DebConf10 as
| Raphael Geissert wrote on his blog.
