Hopefully the desire to release immediately has not thrown
every other consideration out of the window, like standards
conformance, quality, and policy compliance, and so on, that makes
Debian a desirable OS.
We used to not release until we were ready. And this
violation of the FHS seems like an indication that perhaps gnustep
packages are not yet ready -- do you have any arguments as to why we
must release these packages before they match our policies?
