Well, Sarge == stable _did_ make it to the news now, but 
probably not as we have hoped ... My ZDnet news agent mailed 
me this item this morning:

  "Debian drops ball on security updates"

And if I look at the ZDnet page


I see those 2 items nicely aligned after one another.

  * Perens joins start-up SourceLabs
    Open-source advocate to lead developer relations at start-up
    founded last year by former Microsoft and BEA employees.

    * Open source * Executive recruiting * Microsoft Corp

  * Debian drops ball on security updates

    The newly launched Linux
    distribution has a glitch--some
    versions were released with
    default security updates turned

    * Security * Linux

Do we have crisis communication in place ?

I searched this morning and found nothing about this on http://www.debian.org
or http://www.debian.org/security/ .

I don't claim that the "security problem" is at all important (I
actually could not easily find info about it), but that is what at least
part of "the press" has perceived about Debian sarge ...

HTH (really, we should have crisis communication in place, and I didn't
find it),
