 Which approach?  Releasing a ready distribution than rather one that we
can't really support in the current state?  I guess debian would be
loosing much more if it does as you sugguest.

 It's funny that those servers seem to be able to pick up the info about
the estimated release on 1st may from debian-devel-announce but doesn't
seem to be able to pick up the info about why the delay is neccesary
from the very *same* spot.  Sorry, blame to those sites not doing their
job correct, not to the debian project.  The info about it *is*
available at the same place as the estimated release time was made

 It is there, on <http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/> --
right beside where the estimated release date was posted.

 If other public relation sites are not doing their job correct we can't
force them into doing it correct.  Please blame to them.

 Just my thought.  Btw., why the heck is this on debian-devel?  I can't
really see the connection to devel in this thread.

 So long!
