No.  This is a point release, which missed the freeze deadline by just a
few days.  I've been too busy with my PhD work to do more than a few
hours each weekend (sometimes each month) for the past six months.  I
have spent quite a lot of time testing it.

Half the changes are manual page updates.
The bulk of the other changes is switching the small /usr/[s]bin/sbuild-*
utilities to use Getopt::Long for options parsing, adding --help and
--version options amongst others.  sbuild itself was already using
Getopt::Long.  I also rewrote sbuild-createchroot in perl rather than
shell, which adds a number of new improvements and features, including
setting up keyring checking when running debootstrap.

I will if that is required, but there are quite a number of other
bugfixes in the release that I would like to get into Lenny.
