Are the missing filelists in packages the "stopper"? I did some
ftp-installs last 2 weeks and never looked on the output after base
packages install. I assume the real stoppers are the conflicting
CHANGELOG files, right?

Slightly broken ;-) but the base installation lead to a finished
install. But the user reports about the new RC-ISOs are positive for
ftp/http install method, so this current problem is a puppy in the sky
after release.
