Jessie Release

We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We
have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for
everyone.  This means we are able to begin the final preparations for
a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie".

The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical
pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up
technically unable to release that weekend.

Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from
Saturday the 18th of April.  Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before

RC bugs not fixed in time

Should you have any RC bug fixes that misses the deadline please
contact the Stable Release Team via a "pu" bug against the
release.debian.org pseudopackage, including a debdiff of the current
and proposed source packages.

Please note that removals can still occur.  In particular, the
automatic removal from testing remains active!  We currently have
*at least* 12 RC bugs eligible for automatic removal before the

Got an RC bug you cannot live with?

Fix it.  Fix it now! :)

 * unfixed RC bugs in non-key packages, please see [2].
   - These might be automatically removed before the release.

 * fixed RC bugs pending unblock from RT, please see [3].

 * fixed RC bugs, which are unblocked, please see [4].
   - Might be waiting for d-i acks, etc.

On behalf of the Debian Release Team!
