This is not angering. Could we just accept that we're dramatically
short of manpower and that not everything is done the perfect way?

I've personnally accepted this for a while and, though very
frustrating, I think it is still motivating to try keeping the hype at
a sufficient level for D-I not to fall in deep sleep mode (this is
basically the point of /me sending a non perfect "Bits from D-I" mail
even though I'm not the D-I RM).

About Colin's remarks, my personal opinion is that it could be time to
resync the lenny branch with trunk and work off that lenny branch,
yes. Definitely, even.

Do *I* want to do this? No....for a very simple reason: there's is way
too much risk that I mess things around by lack of full time
commitment. As you recently pointed, I still succeed in messing up
changelogs from time to time, so you can imagine if I try to play
around with SVN branches....
