Um yes. Did you miss my post to debian-devel? Everyone I've talked to it
seems in favor of it and I have the support of the stable relese manager,
Vincent Renardias.

Sorry, I keep forgetting some people don't read all of that list. Here's the
summary straight out of DWN. (And I'm not blowing my own horn here, someone
else wrote it. :-)

   Joey Hess proposed
   (http://debian.org/Lists-Archives/debian-devel-9908/msg00604.html) a
   major update to slink (Debian 2.1). Under the proposal, major packages
   that have been tested for 2-4 months will be incoporated into slink.
   Hopefully, this experiment will help cut down on Debian's future release
   cycles. Response so far as been largely positive, and work is underway.

That's fine. I also posted to debian-testing. Anyway, the logical first step
is clearly to make the disks.

Well here they are, though I'll have better ones tomorrow.
