For what it's worth, I as a customer strongly disagree with the fact that I don't know what release a Debian CD has. If 2.0r1 has important security fixes (and it probably does), and I buy a 2.0 CD from a vendor, I _really_ don't want to have to compare the CD to what is on ftp.funet.fi to see if I need to update things further. I understand the problems for the vendors, but I don't agree that they're important enough to warrant not changing the version number. Using "r1" is just ignoring the problem. However, I'm not willing to fight over this.
