I agree in not putting new versions in potato now. But why do we need a
2.2r2 with new versions? It's IMHO the best to put these things in woody
and to freeze woody early (perhaps one or two months after potato is
released). It could perhaps be possible to make woody stable this year
with kernel 2.4.x and with all the new packages you want.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
