I guess some commits would have been nice to review before pushing to
master indeed. A few examples:
 - base-installer's changelog has conflict markers and a deleted entry
   in master now.
 - debian-installer master is used to get autobuilt images, so adding
   packages which aren't available in the archive to pkglists breaks
   those builds.

Until those packages are available in the archive (should that happen,
due to licensing concerns that might involved here, but I'm neither a
lawyer or an ftpmaster), I think it would be safer to keep all
relevant changes into a zol (or any other appropriate name) branch,
and reset the master branches to where they were before you started
pushing things.

Any objections or better ways to restore d-i autobuilds while keeping
Turbo's work around in our repositories? (Reverting the last commit in
debian-installer is a trivial thing to do, of course, but other
packages had larger changes.)
