Well, traditionally we've never decided before hand that the next
release is going to be 4.0 or 3.2 or the like. We work on whatever
comes our way, and when it's ready someone decides if it's 4.0 or just
Some people are of course feel strongly about calling the next thing
3.2 and others would rather see 4.0 -- because <big piece of junk> got
in -- even if Debian as a system isn't seeing any big leap. Since we
try not to develop software ourselves it is sometimes hard to assess
what makes a major release and what a minor one.
