Hi, Since I'm having issues filling the FOSDEM schedule for the first time in years, and since I fucked up with Steve's Debian-CD talk a few years ago, I thought I'd ask you guys if any of you would be interested in holding a talk in the Debian developers' room at FOSDEM. It might be a nice way

Hi, This might be me, I'm not sure. I'm trying to build a VM image that uses NBD to double-check whether #862531 is, as I suspect, indeed not an issue with nbd-client. However, when booting the jessie netinst, my "modules=partman-nbd" command-line parameter to the installer doesn't work, since
