Re: Debian decides to adopt time-based release freezes
Otavio, let me make it clear for all readers that you're talking on
behalf of debian installer team.
I'm sure d-i team is very important to RM team. Communication is far
from being a strong quality of this project, with that in mind could
you please try to dissociate a little from the whole thing and raise
points against a time-based release freeze from d-i team point of
I really want to know, but from your previous message all I see is
"screw you RM team, you talked to Ubuntu folks and didn't talk to our
direct peers so we will make that fail". I'm sorry if it wasn't the
statement you wanted to share.
