Kernel building I've done, after the install, so I'm not worried about
that.  The issues for me are: 
1.  Time.  The next few weeks are busy, so if the release happens
after the next test cycle, it may match my availability to do the
2.  Bandwidth (nothing beats a truckload of CDs [DVDs, tapes, etc] for
bandwidth, althought the latency can be terrible).  Give me a few
weeks, then I'll see if someone could burn me a set.  That would also
give Debian one more shot at the release cycle.

Thanks for the offer.
