I don't like the wording here... you can only post the message as is
after the current vote because at the moment it's not clear whether
"the release of sarge is getting nearer".
In any case, I'd really like volunteers for something else: check
which packages are going to ship new with sarge (i.e. which have not
been in woody or another stable release) and take a closer look at
them to see if we really want to release them.
