Hey, that's a really nice verb you created there. Maybe we should standardize 
on this scheme, thereby getting rid of all those "progagate into/ end up in/ 
be in/ move to/ etc. a distribution" phrases. Just: "package xy will sarge 
soon" would be enough for instance. This could also contribute to our elite 
status, represented by sentences like: "I've did a lintian-clean NMU to 
DELAYED/1-day, so it should testing soon"...

Sorry, simply couldn't resist ;-)

Sounds like a great idea. I'll just go dust of my old Mac and install Virtual
PC so I can run Windows 2000 to run VMWare ....
