Sure.

Once again I agree. And I do not think ignoring extra makes sense at all. It's just that an extra package should not prevent us from a new "core" release. How about a new "core" consisting of base/standard every 6 months and a new full release every year. The full release could then be based on the next to last "core" release. > > Use Debian GNU/Linux!

Yes, I've been too busy to follow thinks closely enough, but the last time I checked therer was just one about an upgrade problem. I didn't even know that noone works on it. Right now I am downloading PostgreSQL bug reports. Also I thought I subscribed to debian-postgres but either it's dead or my subscription did not work as I got no mail at all.
