Ok, well, death march at work effectively over. There are still demands for weekend work to get other releases out, but we will get a chance to recover.

And hopefully I get to clear up bugs in debian-installer and newt.

In particular, hacking on newt / slang to properly support UTF-8 (multibyte characters, wide-characters on entries, etc), and BIDI (Add fribidi support).

Oh, and breakage in console-tools due to 2.6 input-layer kernel changes continues, and some fixes for kbd-chooser (debian-installer) needed.

I hope to do an upload to debian experimental this weekend of these newt changes. Lets see if I get the chance this time.
