Hi, short story: freeze for +edu1 is in effect now \o/ Please don't commit (code changes) to trunk anymore, translation updates are fine. On Dienstag, 16.

Please upload newer versions to sid, I suggest to use non ~svn versions and also upload to lenny-test. I'll be moving the next two days and won't be able to upload myself. On thursday I could probably upload but would prefer to review and move the packages to lenny instead ;-) > - Freeze around march 1st, that means: we can use the international meeting > in Zweibruecken for bug fixing and doing test installs and prepare the > freeze, that is to make sure the packages in lenny-test are in a releasable > state.
