I think, I found my mistake (forgot to cherry-pick some lines from the
original commit), current Iso is online:

Besides comments on (problems with) the iso(s), also any comments on the
archiso-fork (github.com/archlinux32/archiso32) and the archiso-packages
are apreciated.

Something more general:
Maybe, we should set up some standard way to inform testers of new
versions to test? (some separate mailing list? archweb? ...?) I guess,
this list is not solely for (sup)porting i686, and others might not want
to get spammed with i686-test-release news.
