Gawd. We haven't finished slink yet, and we're already talking about freezing potato? Arguments for _not_ freezing, and just adding to slink: * It's _much_ easier to update a couple of packages, and make sure everything else works with them, than to upgrade 1500 packages, and make sure they all work together. * All good little Debianers are meant to help get the release out while we're in the freeze. We don't have to, but we should. We ought to be paying attention to CDs, and QA, and release-critical bugs and whatever else. If we're spending four months working on a freeze, for every two months spent actually *developing*, how are we going to get anything done? OTOH, I'm all for adding certain substantial things to the stable release -- kernel 2.2, X 3.3.3 (and the new drivers in particular), even maybe Qt & KDE.
