The current list of component mismatches needs some work. we didn't have such a
long list for a long time, so please help cleaning this up today.  with feature
freeze we actually want to see the features in the archive in *binary* package form.

Some people from the archive admins, ubuntu MIR, and foundations teams have
committed to work on these issues today, so please join them and pick a package
or two yourself. Please coordinate on #ubuntu-release.



If a package is seeded, it should have a MIR, which apparently isn't true for
some new (usb) seeds.  Provide MIRs for dependencies too.

Track down unwanted promotions.



Dep-Waits usually seen in component mismatches too, track these down, file the MIRs.

Build failures can have other reasons. Please track these down, look up if there
is already a bug report filed, and provide a fix for the build failure.

Happy hacking,
