One of the best ways of getting the release-critical bugs under
control is to freeze potato.  As long as we can upload packages, we
will upload bugs.  If we freeze now, we can reduce the number of bugs
to a reasonable level over the next few weeks.  By the time
boot-floppies are ready the bug count will be at a manageable level,
and potato will be ready for release.
