To explain, perhaps more clearly: the reason 'testing is working quite
well' is simply because glibc 2.3 is holding all of the packages in
unstable from migrating back to testing. If you think "oh, there haven't
been any updates in testing for a long time, there mustn't be any bugs",
then you have a very wrong view of the state of affairs. As soon as
glibc 2.3 is sorted out, I imagine testing users will see about 100
packages to download in only a matter of days. Then the *real* work will

I would vote that once glibc 2.3 and the gcc 3.2 transition seem
stable, then we definitely start discussing the merits of freeze.
