Potato still needs work on these points:
- Bugs. The number of release-critical bugs is over 200 and growing.
- Bootdisks. They have to cope with the larger 2.2 kernels, and I
don't know if powerpc bootdisks are ready yet.
- Glibc 2.1. m68k is still at glibc 2.0. We still have packages that
don't compile with glibc 2.1, but that may be subsumed under "Bugs".
- perl 5.005 adjustments.
The other goals have been realized, or are nearing completion.
Some people have mentined FHS compliance, but as far as I know that was
never a goal for potato. We'll produce hybrid systems until we can
produce a fully FHS compliant system.
I'll be away for about a week, so I won't be able to respond until then.
