That's nice. You realise our actual freeze this time round lasted less
than three months, and most of that was due to the security problem
which we should've known about earlier, and which we won't have to
implement again, right?

One of the nice things about Debian is that you can do just about
whatever you damn well please no matter what anyone says. If you can
convince people that there's a better way of getting sarge out the door
than my way, and if you're right, then that's what'll happen. But you
don't convince people by speculation.

In short, stop ranting at everyone working on d-i, and prove to them
that b-f really can do the job better, by *making* it do the job better.
