Since Chris is probably very busy working of the tasks shown below,
1) Let me make you aware of his recent comments (below)
2) ajt: If ccheney is roughly able to achieve his estimated schedule (below),
will that be sufficient to meet the deadline for inclusion in Woody's release?
3) ajt: Is there a posted release time table? I looked at
and didn't find a timetable there. Would it be a good idea to post a timetable
for the release at http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/ ?

Subject: meta-kde: this package badly needs a maintainer, and badly needs to
get into woody

Version: N/A; reported 2002-02-25
Tasksel depends on the kde metapackages for its desktop task to work as
advertised. Somehow that metapackage has not yet made it into woody. It
is release critical that it does.
The packages in this metapackage have a large number of unsatisfyable
depends, according to the excuses page, expecially on non-i386, but on
i386 as well.
I'm not marking this bug as RC since this package needs to get into
woody and that won't help. Tasksel will be receiving the RC bug. IF this
is not quickly corrected, tasksel might be forced to drop support for
Debian bug tracking system administrator <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Last
