I have to admit that I agree to Filipus, DWN should try to be as
neutral as it can.  However, this requires an Editor that actively
adds items and maintains neutrality, while at the moment (dunc-tank,
yada yada, no funding etc.) DWN is solely contributor-based, so the
contributors decide what gets included.

Filipus, you're welcome to contribute.  Send your items to dwn@debian.org

Hello -
I read the following in the current DistroWatch Weekly:
"Andreas Barth has published a release update regarding the upcoming release of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0. Although it does not provide any information about the probable release date of the much awaited Etch, it does hint at what many suspected was one of the reasons for the current delay - the go slow strike of some of those Debian developers who strongly objected to the Dunc-Tank experiment to fund the work of two release managers with generous salaries..."
Is this correct - that some Debian developers are consciously and deliberately slowing the release of "etch?"
