Re: Where are detailed potato release notes?
Adam, I will continue with the Release-Notes unless you can find
someone who is more knowledgeable about Debian than I (easy to find),
and who wants the job.
In my message to you yesterday, I said that I thought it was time
to make a general appeal to the developers for information about
changes to the distribution for the Release-Notes. I suggested then
that an announcement might be lost in the noise on -devel, and that it
might be better to use -devel-announce. What do you think?

I would suggest that all developers send anything _they_ think
belongs in the Release-Notes to me, and I will start adding them to
the Release-Notes as they accumulate. I can edit or just drop
anything that is too detailed, or doesn't warrant being in the
Will you fork the cvs boot-floppies/documentation tree? I would
prefer to start the potato Release-Notes from my last version of the
slink notes, and go from there.
While we were working on the slink notes, you copied most
correspondence to the -boot list, but now you are on -doc. Which is
most appropriate for the potato Release-Notes? I am now subscribed to
both, but would like to cut back on some of my lists.
I like Julian's listing of "cases", and will include this, or a
summary of it in my request for submittals from the developers.
