Hi, apologies for further delay... besides that I moved eight days ago (which was unexpected when I published the original timeline on February 16th(!)) and didnt have internet here on the 2nd day as planned, I was also unmotivated to fix that faster and then slow(er) to catchup/proceed with various stuff since exactly a week ago today, I had to bury my wonderful dog after he accompanied me for more then 13 years... On the plus side, due to the lack of internet, I managed to unpack everything already and almost set everything up :-) Back on topic: On Montag, 1. März 2010, Holger Levsen wrote: > On Dienstag, 16.

Current estimates: rc2 on the 20th now (if no issues are found in rc1, do final release on the 22nd instead). I think it's actually quite likely there are no issues in rc1 :-) > > - To finish the international press announcement the text has to be > > agreed upon the release managers and the Debian press team, though inputs > > from everyone are very appreciated . > > > > - 13th: last day for building and uploading debian-edu-install and > > debian-edu-doc to include new translations. two days are needed to do and > > test the final builds. > > > > - Release 5.0.4+edu1 on the 16th, send out international press release by > > Debian press team. Current estimates: if issues are found in rc1 (but not in rc2..), the 24th is the last upload day for d-e-i and d-e-d for new translations, final release on the 26th.
