What he said!

Seriously people, don't get too psyched out by missing a release deadline.
Every project struggles to meet release deadlines, every project occasionally
fails. Especially when a major system-wide change is made, like libc6. And the
nature of release engineering is such that the further you fall behind the
harder it is to get the release out.

Really, don't jump to conclusions like "Debian obviously can't continue the
way it's been going". We screwed up once. We should keep that in mind next
time a deadline looms or release requirements start getting overambitious.
