?? What major bugs exist in hamm? All important bugs were fixed before 
release. Individual packages do contain other less important bugs, yes,
but with so many packages, that's not surprising. Remember, we don't write
the upstream software, and it isn't a maintainer's responsibility to fix
bugs in the upstream source.

I have a box here running hamm, up for 186 days, there are no bugs in
my day to day work on the machine (it does PPP, email (smail+mutt+qpopper,
recently upgraded to exim), web (Apache, Apache-ssl)), etc).
