That's clear.

I was talking about potato -> sarge, not woody -> sarge.


One of the reasons why I dislike the _very_ short time between the 
actual freeze and the release in the current release plan is that this 
will give only very limited time of the comple set of packages that will 
comprise Debian 3.1, including only few time to identify and fix all 
upgrade problems.

It might happen that some problems start shortly before the freeze.
