And you deserve kudos for that. 

But still, it is unrealistic to ask, so late in the release process,
to introduce several thousand-lines patches in the kernel, even if they
finally exist (and AFAIK there are not patches for all these bugs).

You cannot say either that you were ignoring the situation until now. It
should have been obvious that, given how they evolved, these bugs would
be ignored for lenny. It is unfortunate, but people have focused on
fixing other kinds of bugs.

They are serious bugs. And if we waited to have zero serious bugs before
releasing, we’d never release. That’s why lenny-ignore tags are here.

The release team is not trying to lower standards, but simply to
mitigate between the issues and obtain the best compromise.
