My plan so far was: 

 - get updated kernel packages for architectures that need it. I expect
   2.4.20-bf2.4/i386 soon, with fixed Ext3, of course
 - tag and start building of bf-3.0.24 short after 3.0r1. Joey is going
   to release 3.0r1 very soon.
I think, the problems with s390 and m86k are kinda nasty, but can wait
till the begin of 2003. Boot-Floppies should have some testing before.
There are IMHO too many changes commited (or outstanding) for making a
rash release just to get it into r1.

Oh, and I won't work on BFs till the end of the week (exams), so if
someone wants to make a new release ASAP, begin contacting the b-f
building people, tell Joey to wait another 2 weeks, etc. etc. we _could_
use 2.4.19-bf2.4 for i386, but should we?

das problem ist nun das ich die configure skripte damit nicht überlisten
