Almost two weeks have passed since this test cycle began, so this would seem
to be the time to make that evaluation.
Since the archive move and all the related trouble related to it happened
exactly during the test cycle, the schedule is a bit disturbed (two
Incomings etc), but we shouldn't let these problems delay the release any
longer than it already has to be :)
How about this for the next plan: you accept uploads to potato until the new
boot-floppies get uploaded (if they do), and then start a new test cycle.
People can continue testing with the CD images from the previous test cycle
in the meantime (the differences aren't that important for testing
installations). What do you think?
