source of confusion here is that "Squeeze" is ambiguous between "the

every issue of DPN!

Maybe we could say:

    According to the<a href="http://udd.debian.org/bugs.cgi";>Bugs
    Search interface of the Ultimate Debian Database</a>, the upcoming
    release is currently affected by 200 release-critical bugs.

Any better?
No... that's the same. The upcoming release is in any case Squeeze, the
current testing. When Squeeze will release, it will be affected by 0
release-critical bugs. In its current state though, Squeeze has 271 RC
bugs. 200 would be the number of RC bugs in squeeze which are not fixed
[in unstable].
You insist on interpreting "the upcoming release" as the software
currently referenced in http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/,
rather than as the software we're currently on course to release as
Squeeze (some of which already has bugfixes incoming).  Oh well.
No, I was trying to explain that for either interpretation, 200 was wrong. The normal reading would mean 271, but the reading of "final squeeze" would mean 0 RC bugs (a very dull statistic). The set of packages that will be released as squeeze is unknown.
Why not suggest an alternative that expresses the idea in a way you
At this point I won't express preferences. Anything valid that Alexander will like is fine.
