Some of them have actually been replaced the last days.
However it will only affect people running sysinstall on the DVD images.
The installed result of the base wasn't changed, just a missing file added to
the image as you could guess given there was no further commits to
release/9.0.0 in SVN.

There's also torrents to be started, yadda yadda yadda and some other people
working really hard to get all things finished and loose ends together and
if they are lucky in between all of this there is an hour or two for a
weekend and them having a life.

Be patient and wait for the mail maybe somewhen in the upcoming week.
