List of bugs that *must* be fixed before releasing Hamm

The following bug reports *must* be fixed before the current frozen Debian
distribution can progress further in its development cycle.  Reminders have
been sent to the maintainers of these packages but some of the packages with
older bugs could probably use some assistance.

The above are all the "critical", "grave", and "important" bug reports, both
"pending" and "forwarded".

If you would like to help speed the release of the next Debian distribution,
you are encourage to take part in fixing these bugs.  More information about
them can be found on Debian's web page:  http://www.debian.org/Bugs/

These bugs can either be degraded below critical, grave, and important, or
they can be fixed in non-maintainer releases.

Alternatively, the package can be reverted to the version in Bo.  If this is
done, _don't_ close the bug but rather downgrade the severity of the bug
to "normal".

If there is a bug that you think must be fixed before the release of this
distribution, please upgrade its severity to critical, grave, or important.
For more info on this, see:  http://www.us.debian.org/Bugs/server-control.html
Be sure to copy the bug directly with the reason why the severity changed.
