I presume this has been discussed to death on this list before, but what's
wrong with a shorter development cycle?  Why not freeze woody now or in a
month's time (when there _might_ be a "stable" 2.4.0 kernel)?  IMHO, it's
made huge leaps and bounds in actual development from potato, and the sooner
it's frozen, the sooner the new unstable can start, but at least there'll be
a new debian stable by mid 2001 (or perhaps even earlier).
