I can assure you, that is not true. We had some discussion within the
release team about this bug, we took it very seriously. However, there
were only two options: Release this weekend or delay it a further week.
We decided that in total releasing now was the better option. Please
note that this didn't say it is not a problem. But just that this issue
won't hold up the release. Actually, I personally consider some bugs
worse than this one, like the doc-debian package didn't make it to
sarge, samba has a bad bug, #311357 (problem with via-rhine in the
kernel).  But, one has just to say at some point "now, we release".
Because there will be always a known issue.

And, I'm proud about Sarge, and that I had the possibility to be part of
the team working on Sarge. And I'm happy about the great support and
help by the Debian community for sarge and getting (almost) all parts in
shape. Thanks for that.
