Re: Release Update: Goals, Arches, Rolling, Removals

As noted in our previous mail [0DAY:DDA], bug #625449 has been opened
against developers-reference. This now seems to be drawing itself to
a conclusion. We would still welcome use of delayed queues where
appropriate, but this also formalises the policy over the previous
few years which allows DELAYED/0 for uploads fixing only
release-critical bugs older than 7 days, with no maintainer activity
on the bug for 7 days and no indication that a fix is in progress.
If you decide to NMU without delay a package maintained by me,
please don't bother doing it, but orphan the package instead. I won't
be interested in maintaining such a package anymore.
 That is, with the Maintainer field set to me.
The conclusion in the bug was to do have a delay btw... so your comment
does not make sense to me.
Your comment doesn't make sense to me either. For the reference, this is
the change that has been made to Developer's Reference:
--- pkgs.dbk (revision 8901)

Are you trying to say that delay of 0 days is something substantially
different than no delay? Or that the change is contrary to the bug
conclusions and was done by mistake?
