I am more pessimistic about this. Boot floppies and security
infrastructure have been delaying woody for multiple months as well,
and if we don't have security and installer delaying etch, I am pretty
convinced that there will other stoppers this time.

We have been talking about a "release nightmare" with potato and
woody, and that sarge is an even bigger one is as clear as one can
see. I suspect a tendency here.
