I agree.

On http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Status/Etch there is a link, called "bugs 
which we want to fix for etch, are confirmed and not documentation related" 
which shows all bugs with Priority 1,2 and 3 (excluding the unconfirmed ones 
and the documentation related ones):

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/buglist.cgi?short_desc_type=notregexp&short_desc=.*%28document%7Cconfirm%29.*&product=Skolelinux&long_desc_type=allwordssubstr&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&priority=P1&priority=P2&priority=P3&emailtype1=substring&email1=&emailtype2=substring&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&changedin=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&newqueryname=&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=

I suggest we release (the stable version, not test4) not earlier as this link 
doesnt show any bugs with Prio 1 and 2. Currently thats 4 bugs left (the rest 
has Prio 3=we want to fix them, but we might not manage.)

http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Status/Etch also shows some more Bugs which 
are not in bugzilla, I'll start *now* to move them into bugzilla.

I think it's important that we use comprehensible criterias when we release. 
For me this means: no bugs left in bugzilla which are a.) confirmed, b.) not 
documentation related (i'm willing to argue on that, documentation is 
important) and c.) have Prio 1 or 2.

Of course, this has the "danger" of moving the discussion whether we fix this 
or that bug into a "bugzilla-war", but a.) I dont think we'll have 
bugzila-wars, we are reasonable people working on a common goal and b.) this 
is where such a _discussion_ (not war) belongs :)

Also, everybody how has a "pet-bug" is able to see, that "we don't care" and 
has the opportunity to fix those bugs themselves.


regards,
	Holger
