        Really? I doubt that the effort to get the next release of
 debian to a state where we can ock down a out of the box install or
 virtual machine with selinux strict policy is going to get any
 consideration at all.

        All the short first release cyce seems to do is to ensure that
 canonical's LTS will always be a more compelling product than a Debian
 release, being slightly newer and improved. Does not sound like a win
 for Debian (just makes us even more irrelevant).

It is the quality rather than the quantity that matters. Lucius Annaeus
