Yes. I put a newer version into the fai-project.org
repository. because we hab problems when using the 3.16 bpo kernel.

You should use the FAI repository, so that you will get FAI 4.2.5 on
your install server (when running Debian wheezy).
You can remove this once you have installed the FAI packages.

When builing the nfsroot /etc/fai/apt./sources.list
is used. There you should include the FAI repository (for getting the
newer FAI packages).
