They could just be removed from sarge and be released again with
sarge+1... Not every package with a RC bug has to be fixed and released
with sarge, it is common practice to pull them if they don't get fixed
in time.

You're not really suggesting to not release gnustep in sarge?

That's what we do with packages that aren't of release quality.

Do you really and honestly believe that this bug means that gnustep is
not of release quality. In my opinion, these bugs are non-blockers for
sarge, and one of the issues that should be fixed for sarge+1.


No package is an exception to debian policy except for maybe any of the old GFDL crap in coreutils. If they[the maintainers] don't want to meet debian standards these packages don't deserve to be in Debian.
