What is happening with Debian 1.2

It's not a big deal. We had some argument about what belonged in the release,
and as a consequence I decided that I need to retain control of the release as
project leader. People were undiplomatic on e-mail, feelings got hurt and toes
stepped on, the usual net stuff. I try to avoid having that sort of thing
happen to Debian, but this time I messed up. Mea culpa. Now it's time to go
on with our lives and the project.

How long you hold off on the 1.2 upgrade depends on whether you have
un-trusted users on your system or not, and whether you run X on that system.
If you do, don't upgrade it until the XFree86 3.2 stuff has made its way out
to the mirror site you are using. The rest of 1.2 is in _fine_ shape. Lots
of people are running it and say it is solid.

Another thing that might keep you from upgrading is that ftp.debian.org
seems to have lost "frozen" this evening. It is still available on
debian.crosslink.net . I asked the ftp.debian.org system manager to look
into the problem.
