Er.. wrong.

We're not waiting for all bugs to get fixed before releasing slink,
just the important ones.

That said, I really wish that slink had been released some time ago, and
that this discussion was about including 2.2 in the soon-to-be-released

[I think dpkg and X have been the two biggest problems.  X seems to
be under control, but we seem to still be fighting some brittleness
in dpkg.  [brittleness is a term I use for software which has been
modified too much, so that further changes are difficult.]]
