We got the rest of the modconf issues tracked down now, hopefully - thanks a lot, tausq. Tasksel takes more gracefully to being control-c'd, too. No real settlement on the broken miBoot issue, but Ben is looking at it; for now I've reverted to the previous version.

Boot floppies 2.2.12 is uploaded for sparc, powerpc, i386, and alpha. The changelog is a fairly hefty piece of work. Thanks go out to Othmar Pasteka for his help in making all the documentation build again, and of course Adam Di Carlo for his usual excellent management. I've been doing a bit of the organization of the past two releases, and I am really getting a feel for why he hates his job.

I'm going to go back to debian-cd boot support tomorrow or the following day, as soon as we have 2.2.12 installed in the archive. YaBoot is a package now, and installed (a big Thank You to our Harried Release Manager, Richard Braakman). Thus I can clean up the code and remove a couple of the worst hacks.
