The tracking page I mentioned before,


Right now to update that list I have to edit


But I had to get an account on spohr in order to do that. I think the goal is 
to set it up on another machine that's generally accessible instead, I'll ask 
what the status is.

Yeah that will work ok for now.

I don't think so because sarge can't be 3.0 compliant (glibc isn't new enough 
among other things) so I think 2.0 for sarge and 3.0+ for etch.

All of this was dependent on sarge's release date and I think this is the 
first it's been discussed on the list. Something else for the yet to be 
created wiki page I guess :)
