(plus what Marc followed up as answer too) OK, then, fair enough. I actually also agree that Clint's text can't go out as is and needs some rewording to be able to be sent out as a release update. As is, still, it is already a very useful information for people who want to get a rough idea of remaining issues to deal with without having been involved in many recent lists. I hope that Clint is OK for his text to be used as a basis for a more general release update mail. WRT concerns about the way such text can be interpreted by "the press" or whoever not directly involved in Debian and is reading d-d-a, I think that should go *after* the need to inform developers. I know that past experience showed that interpretation of mails sent to d-d-a by outsiders of the project may in some way lead to false assesments and facts published on web site or "the press" in general. But I'm not really sure we can really have a big control over this, whatever the text is.
