Re: potato late, goals for woody (IMHO)

Slink is so old now as to be borderline useless.  With its basis of glibc
2.0 instead of 2.1, slink will not run the Sun JDK 1.2.2, PostgreSQL 6.5,
and all sorts of other things we need.  As a result, we actually have
production web servers and database servers running on potato, which is
not technically stable.  We regard this as extremely undesirable.
