AFAICT we (release team) are not rushing anything, just stating that beating the freeze isn't strictly needed, so that we get good, tested patches, instead of having anything getting rushed. Also, while we (the Debian Project) haven't managed to get the theme part sorted out a few months after the release, we might manage to get it done roughly around the freeze date, which means a 3-month improvement. Surely there's still room for progress here, but things look better to me. > Why are we encouraging doing this again? I think what we really did was finding someone caring/interested enough to pick up the job and do the work. As stated in other parts of this thread, there were several calls for help in that area, which led nowhere. I'm happy to take the blame for reaching the “we managed to convince Paul to work on this” situation. Mraw, KiBi.
