I've written a new CD script that already builds binary CDs successfully.
The CD script will be ready before september.

It will be solved in some days, there's only 15 packages to update. The
other are already installed or waiting in Incoming.

Don't you see how fast we kill bugs ? I've opened 80 important bugs for
the perl upgrade, and I'm busy correcting all those (and other when
possible) with dozens of NMUs.

Josip is also coordinating the work about the release critical bugs. If
some maintainers work on this area regularly, the RCB counter may well
ridiculously low by september.

This is something where I can't help. But I need some packages in Incoming
to be installed in order to finish the perl upgrade ... as I need some
packages to be removed (like libmd5-perl and alias).

No more, this night the push was ok I think.

Okay, we can't release bebore end september. :-)

Anyway, this is short a time-frame we'll not be able to follow if people
don't work on fixing bugs.
