... yeah, which is one of the reasons why Debian folks are commonly
considered arrogant. Anyway, this is just my perception.

I don't really, but having talked to a lot of potential, new, and
going-away users in the last year, it is my impression that it's
more what people want to hear. Just hearing "when it's done" every
single time can be quite annoying. I don't think it hurts to give
a little more info about where we actually stand, and even though it
would be foolish to say that sarge will be out before April, it
currently *does* look like we'll make the first half of 2005. So
tell them. And if we do not make it, we can always tell them
something else later. :)
