We don't want Debian 2.0 to be yet another Red-Hat 5.0.
We don't know for sure when it will be released, but we know that it
should be bug-free enough before it will be released.

When hamm was frozen, slink becomed the new "unstable", so new packages
should in general go there and that's why slink is now growing. This does
not mean bug in hamm are not being fixed at the same time.

Debian 2.0 not only will be full libc6 but also libc5-compatible. This
means that you will be able not only to run old libc5 apps but also
*compile* them by using the -altdev packages.
