Well, this is just a shot in the dark here, but maybe if sarge was frozen,
RC bugs in base were low, and d-i was the last thing that everyone was
waiting for, it'd help motivate people to get involved with d-i.
But hell, we've got to wait for Gnome 2.6 now. And mozilla 1.7 is coming out
soon too. And XFree 4.3.4, of course, and don't forget glibc 2.3.3, and foo
and bar and baz and all of the other software that keeps trickling into
testing while there's no freeze, allowing RC bugs to pile up with no end in
sight.. But if d-i was only finished, we could release! Damn it, why can't
we get more people to work on d-i??
