I'd like to request a freeze exception for the 'fai' and
'live-initramfs' package.

The reason is that I didn't merge fai from debian yet. It does not
really make sense testing fai before ubuntu development has reached a
freeze state, since we are talking about an installer. We need a
somewhat installable system in order to properly test and use fai.

The exception request includes 'live-initramfs'. It is only used by
'live-helper' and 'fai' for enabling systems to boot from an read-only
medium, such as an CDROM or ro NFSROOT. it has been developed as fork
from our 'casper' package.

I propose Stephan Hermann and myself as Per-Package delegation for this
set of packages with the purpose of having 'fai' in a useable state for
intrepid release.
