I was going to ask the same. :-)

Hopefully, today night or tomorrow, I'll pull all changes and
build/test a package locally, and then upload.

I read your comment on the other bug report too, about iscsi being
available in the installed. I'm not worried about its readiness for
Stretch, but just curious if it is available.

So I'll go look into the latest Stretch installer iso soon. Nothing to
do with the -13 upload.

Yes. I'll do the upload soon in this coming week.
