No, you don't seem to understand that I'm saying that having these bits out
of sync at release time is *unacceptable*.  I don't think it's ok to ship
two copies of glibc in the archive for each release just because it was
inconvenient to get the debs and udebs synchronized properly.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
