Re: I'd like to coordinate a major update of stable
I see that an update of stable is not only something that is desireable, but it
is also needed. Adding XFree86 3.3.3 is a good example of this. I have seen
that in MANY cases, the package maintainers update their packages for slink,
even after unstable is well into the project cycle. If the maintainers are
already kicking ass by setting up .deb files for both the older "stable" and
"unstable, by makeing the .deb files available, why not make these new .deb
