Actually, no; policy violations are RC by *default*, but the definition of
what's release-critical for a release is set by the release team with input
from the developer community.

I'm fairly certain that we're shipping packages in sarge that have
maintainer fields pointing at people who have orphaned the packages in
question; if it wasn't true at the time of the sarge release, it will
certainly be true of sarge by the time etch releases.  If we can survive
this, I don't think that putting a mailing list address in a changelog
(wrong though I think it is) would be grounds for delaying the release or
removing the package from the release (the definition of RC).

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
