Re: potato late, goals for woody (IMHO)

I have no problem with this.  As you point out, woody has been around
since November 1999 or so.  It ought to be ready for freeze real soon now.  
I would guess the 2.4.x kernels will settle down by about August, and we
could freeze woody then, releasing it as stable by October or November.  
Of 2000, not 2001.

I think the key is letting people know when to expect the freeze about two
or three months in advance to an accuracy of a couple of weeks.
