yes, I believe so.

Assuming the above is our consensus, then the next step is probably to
let the debian release folks know that they can drop the squeeze suite
Also, we need to meet with the debian-ports people (aka Aurelien) to
find out how to start the migration. I know Aurelien mentioned that
they are running low on disk space, so we may need to resolve that
Longterm, we'll probably need someone who can build/test/publish
installers, and presumably host an install-howto page on p-l.org.
Unless something changes in the next day or so, I'll get those steps
