Why on earth would you think you should be contacted > before this sort of decision is made? Is there any formal policy as to how and when these release issues are decided? (regarding codename or release version numbers)? I found this email snippet on -release (which seems the logical 'where') "Debian is not a democracy. Debian is a volounteer organisation. The essential difference is: in a democracy, everybody can directly influence the decision. In Debian, the person who does something can tell how he does it (in most cases - and within the limit of the Social Contract, the DFSG and similar documents). ajt is release manager, he does the release, so he decides how he calls it." -vbi that would suggest that its the RM who has decided such issues in the past unilaterilly. cheers, -Kev  http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2004/01/msg00029.html -- counter.li.org #238656 -- goto counter.li.org and be counted! `$' $' $ $ _ ,d$$$g$ ,d$$$b. $,d$$$b`$' g$$$$$b $,d$$b ,$P' `$ ,$P' `Y$ $$' `$ $ "' `$ $$' `$ $$ $ $$ggggg$ $ $ $ ,$P"" $ $ $ `$g. ,$$ `$$._ _. $ _,g$P $ `$b. ,$$ $ $ `Y$$P'$. `Y$$$$P $$$P"' ,$. `Y$$P'$ $. ,$.
