Is this release schedule coming into better focus yet as we get closer? Any
proposed timeline with milestones for the debian-booters to consider?
Will there be a call for testing on d-d-a before the actual release, to
provide better feedback going into the RC and increasing the chances that
we can get it in one shot?
I would very much like to see 2.6.18 in testing for rc1. Looking at the bug
page, I don't really see any indication that 2.6.18 is a regression overall
wrt 2.6.17, so aside from sorting out the hppa build failure, I would say
that 2.6.18 is already ready for us to push in.
