*Please* release R6.
I've been using debian for a long time and I tell everyone I can about
it. I've installed the curent release on several machines and I'm very
happy with it.
The constant delays in releasing the thing have to stop.
I know that Ian M. had hard drive problems. That's unfortunate, and
certainly cause for some difficulty in getting the release out the door.
However, the Debian project did post to a double handful of newsgroups
and mailing lists a ``press release'' which firmly announced a release
date. Doesn't that mean anything to anyone? I think it's a little
shameful to make an announcement like that in public and then, almost
a month after the announced date, still not to have even acknowledged
publically that the date has come and gone.
At some point you have to just say ``that's it, warts and all.'' Please
make it soon.
