I really don't know whats so hard to understand in: "This service is targeted
to stable/oldstable". Another release would mean more work for us. Also we
use releases to redefine the policy where its needed and that part is also
not finished yet. Also we need announcements, docs and so on. Maybe you want
to start with documenting -sloppy? Its always easy to tell other people what
they have to do - or not to do.
