So what's going on now with the debian branches? Here's what I see as of
this morning:

stable = 7.0 (without a svn revision tag)
testing = 7.0 (with a revision tag, 7.0-17983 which is older than a build I
previously got from testing named 7.0.1-18108)
unstable = 7.1 (with revision tag, 7.1-18211).

Is this expected? Where did the 7.0.1 builds go? Are the 7.0.1 builds now
just labeled as 7.0+svn rev to allow a smooth transition to a "genuine"
7.0.1 build? That would be fine with me, but build 17983 seems old. I read
about some SBC artwork speed improvements that need updated 7.0.1 builds to
see.

Thanks,
Ben

I am seeing this same issue. It's also being discussed in the "today's
build a real mess" thread on the beta list.
