Well, this temporary problem lasts since quite a while now and i fear
that it will last for quite a while longer. I don't expect Debian-2.0
to happen earlier than somewhere at the end of january next year. So
why not update some crucial packages for bo resulting maybe in a minor
interim release? How about perl-5.004, the current bash and a few
other important goodies?
