I agree. Better to wait a week or so than to release a buggy version.

I speaking based on my experience with the hamm cd's that I've bought: When
I installed hamm over bo with dselect (the same thing happens when
installing hamm for the first time), it just frooze completely when trying
to configure X. For me this wasn't a problem, it was just a matter of
changing to a different console, and killing the offending processes, but
when I try to "sell" the Debian distribution to some friends (Linux _very_
newbies), and then this blows up on them, what I am supposed to say?
