Upcoming Debian 2.0 Release

Okay, everybody...  It's about time to release!  However, the following
"important" problems need to be solved first.  This first section of bugs
are those that apply to packages essential to the shipping of the Debian
distribution.  Until those bugs are fixed or downgraded in severity, we
_cannot_ ship.

Remember, the definition of "important" is that the distribution is better
off without that package than with this problem.  In these cases, though,
the packages are essential for the distribution.

This next set of "important" bugs apply to those packages that can be removed
from the distribution.  So, _tomorrow_, I will be removing these packages
unless all release-critical bugs against them have been closed.  If you feel
a package should be included in the distribution at all costs, please let me
