I was interested how we're doing according to AJ's original timetable, so had a read and see how we're doing given we've just passed the third date milestone... This is given "without comment", that is I'm not trying to start a flamewar here.

We're a HELL of a long way north of the target of 100 RC bugs left! > 1st test cycle, public request for comments > Excellent, time for a public test cycle... > Last minute fixes and changes to the installer > Who'd've thought that "make it work on most of the architectures" counted as a "last minute fix"? I think it's fair to say that we're not going to reach the following state within 14 days unless a miracle, or a hell of a lot of work happens: > * October 15th > > Drop the RC bug list by ~100 bugs to ~0 > (via fixes, workarounds, wishful thinking and ignorance) > > Final, last minute, low-risk bug fixes only > > Get support for sarge up and running on security.debian.org > > 2nd test cycle, public request for comments So "Where are we now?" Having played with d-i some and kept a watchful eye on the release-critical list, I guess we're currently at the "September 15th" dateline which puts us roughly 14 days behind schedule.
