Hello again,

What's the timeline for Etch and artwork?

Hi Michael,

Good question.

The Debian Etch release timeline used to be:
N-117  = Mon 30 Jul 06: freeze essential toolchain, kernels
N-110  = Mon  7 Aug 06: freeze base, non-essential toolchain (including
                       e.g. cdbs)
N-105  = Mon 14 Aug 06: d-i RC [directly after base freeze]
N-45   = Wed 18 Oct 06: general freeze [about 2 months after base
                       freeze, d-i RC]
N      = Mon  4 Dec 06: release [1.5 months for the general freeze]

With the 18 Oct and 4 Dec deadlines above in mind we have something like:
Sat 30 Sep 06 : Debian Common Guidelines Draft
Mon 09 Oct 06 : Artwork templates (login screen, splash, wallpapers) done
Wed 18 Oct 06 - [days to let the packages migrate to testing]:
"Common" Artwork uploaded to multiple source packages

A delay in the general freeze can open room for us upload the the
'common' artwork not to the multiple source packages but push them
into desktop-base generating multiple binaries as discussed in our


In other words, what's the deadline for backgrounds and *dm themes to
get into the Etch release?

YMMV. :)
