No time for *3 weeks*? If they are that busy, they should let other
people do it. That won't happen, because they are afraid to lose
power. This is only bureaucracy nonsense I can't work with.

Oh, and they really screw up the Hurd port, the last status mail I've
seen was "we are currently stalling and waiting for GCC 3.1 and the
acceptance of libc0.3 and dpkg." GCC 3.1 is already released, but we
are still waiting for the cabals. But I am wasting my time anyhow,
because Debian doesn't care about the Hurd port being screwed up.
