The consensus on debian-alpha is that it should be released as a
"real, official release".  Just about every package is compiled now
(a couple are out of date, but that's just the normal catch-up work
for when i386 packages are uploaded into frozen).  Unfortunately, a
couple of potato packages are also uploaded into sid, but that's
really unavoidable as there is no separate "frozen" and "unstable"
dist for alpha (although I don't understand why there isn't).
