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?

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. :)
