Sure there is. Shut up and let us finish what we're doing.

Do you really think what you're doing now is helpful? Let me assure you,
it's not. It's demotivating and distracting.

No, they've refused to make security updates for woody, whether it's
testing or stable.

That's nice. If there were something I could tell you, I'd love to:
but there isn't: there's nothing you can do, and there's no reliable
indications I can give you on which you can base your own estimate of
when woody'll be ready.

There *really* isn't anything for you to know. Accept it. Live with it
for however much longer it takes, then move on.
