It's Time to Release

Okay everyone...  enough delays!

Here's what I would like to do:

For the next 7 days, now installs will be greatly restricted.  If it
doesn't fix a critical or grave bug, it doesn't go in.  If it does
anything _but_ fix a critical or grave bug, it may be rejected anyway.
Fixes to important bugs <33000 will be considered for installation,
but not any later ones.

Come Monday, February 22nd, all uploads will be locked out except for
extreme necessity.  This will give several days for other achitectures
to catch up to installs from the week before.  Non necessary packages
with critical, grave, or important (<33000) bugs against them will be

Stabalize Slink on Friday (Thursday night?), February 26th at 00:00 GMT.
CD builders can then make their images over the coming weekend.  No further
changes to Slink will be allowed.

Official release Debian v2.1 on Tuesday (Monday night?), March 2nd at
00:00 GMT.

Any objections?
