Yes I did.  I can either read debian-devel, or get some real work done.
I choose to skip debian devel for now.

Can you please direct release-related info to debian-release?
Are you on that list?

Eh... Please try to coordinate a bit here, someone.  Has debian-cd been
bonked about this?  How about the porters?

Your idea w.r.t. stable update is good, although I think you should
move more conservatively.  I don't know that you've considered the
problems which this "mini-freeze" are going to create for all those folks
who should be discussing all this now on debian-release. :)
