A hundred? Hehe. If only. *gibber* There's a bit over 1700 source packages that're nominally ready to be stuck into testing *right now*, that're being held back by various libraries and such (glibc, perl, python, C++, gtk, kde, etc). Which is to say about a quarter of Debian, and probably biassed towards the things everyone has installed rather than distributed evenly over the stuff you don't have installed. For the past five months or so, testing's been working "correctly" but only in so far as unstable hasn't been. testing has *no* value if we can't provide "functional" software in unstable on a fairly reliable basis, and since woody's release, we really haven't managed that, even -- especially -- on the most core package of the entire distribution.
