Re: Packaging of new upstream (pre-)releases until wheezy

It seems
like many DMs package new releases/fixes bugs closer to the release than

anyway. Why not package pre-releases in experimental, to squeeze bugs
out before the new upstream release comes out?

And what makes you assume that?

Doing that will make the
release of wheezy much smoother than trying to fix things in the last
minute (and risk that the packages gets excluded from wheezy??)

Given that the current state is to freeze the archive in about two months[1] the "finalizing" part should already be ongoing as we speak.

"A reminder to everyone that the freeze is due in June."

Anyone who makes love to Bruce Schneier discovers a 0-day flaw in a crypto protocol the next day.
