Additionally, I'd like to ask you to help document noteworthy changes
in Debian from 2.2 (potato) to 3.0 (woody), which should be included in
our Release Notes.  These could include different behaviour of some
packages as well as non-critical but potentially important bugs in
packages that won't be updated in the point-releases.

  For example, see the note about the Estonian timezone that does not
  reflect reality anymore and needs an update if you are living in
  this particular timezone:

  <http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/i386/release-notes/ch-errata.en.html#s-tz-ee>

  As an example to changed behaviour of a package see PostgreSQL,
  which is not as lax with its input as it was in the potato release:

  <http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/i386/release-notes/ch-errata.en.html#s-postgresql>

Rob Bradford requested that updates be sent to the mailing list
debian-doc@lists.debian.org as well so they don't get lost.

Regards,

	Joey
