OK, can understand that. BTW, this means, off course, that one shouldn't try
to "fix" the archive as well (which is, if I understand you correctly, what
has been done to the archive to "fix" Kubuntu and Edubuntu), because that
is, in a way, a change to the Breezy suite as well.

We have, in fact, had earlier problems with the archive, then due to a
restore that was done without changing the time stamp of the restored file.
I hope this all leads to a more ehrm, conservative policy on changing
anything in the archive ;-)

Ehrm, yes, off course. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Installation/Netboot has the
fix for now, that's the best I could think of. If the archive has been
fixed, this comment can be removed again.
