I get a little concerned when people want to release a distribution
without installation disk and call it stable.  Debian becomes known as the
potluck distribution, it may or may not have what you need to install it.

I think I agree with Dale the most: we bit off a big chunk this time, and
now we are paying for it.  If the future, lets try to take more managable
bites and releases will be more often and still stable.
