being still quite "shocked" about the news, I too suggest to find a way
which is as close as release as possible.
While for Hurd I feel the problem less, since people using it often
track unstable or even unofficial repositories; for 68k it is
different. When I regularly used 68k more I had different setups: a
machine on unstable or testing "to play with" and to develop on, but
the workhorse was on stable, for obvious reasons. I'd prefer not to run
a server (web, mail or whatever) on something which is not 'stable'.
Thus a smooth transition path and a convenient way to keep such server
machines up-to-date needs to be found.
My real hope is that we can work around the problems that kicked us out
of the release mechanism and "be in" the next time.
I myself am not a DD, but I run debian of course and am eager to help
to my knlwoedge and possibility to get problems solved.
