Thanks for giving the new packages in incoming/ a chance to stabilize.
Sticking to the original plan (as opposed to schedule) of not freezing until
the install and base are ready is probably for the best. If nothing else
this will give some people time over the winter holidays to work on hard
problems like non-i386 architecture installation, debian-cd, woody package
I'm also all for an updated slink, as the current version often fails to
be fully functional on new hardware (X11, kernel sound). I don't care about
Y2K, but most of those that do need something concrete from an upstream
supplier so they can put a mark in a checkbox.
