Re: please make an announcement

I'd appreciate an update on the sarge release plans / status as well. 

I do feel the need to clarify the GNOME status though.

GNOME 2.6 is being uploaded to _experimental_; see
http://pkg-gnome.alioth.debian.org/package-status.html for details.

It doesn't affect sarge. It doesn't even affect sid and thus we retain the
means to fix both RC and non-RC bugs in GNOME 2.4, which is exactly what we
should do near a release.

GNOME 2.6 won't go into sid until it's complete and has undergone reasonable
testing and isn't likely to delay sarge's release (either because sarge has
already been released or because sarge's release for whatever reason is no
longer expected to be feasible in the short term).
