Yes, and here we are... some months after Woody's release still 
discussing if we should work on sarge or not... yes, let's delay
the release a bit... there's no problem in doing so...

Isn't it time we decide which GNOME we want to get released with 
sarge and start working on it? Are we doing any good to our
users by delaying the development? Do we really understand
what we are doing, what unstable's for, etc?
