I see little difference with the previous development cycle. Unstable is
perhaps a bit more worthy of its name than in the previous cycle, but that's
largely due to the large number of upstream changes that affect it (GNOME2,
gcc 3.2, perl 5.8, merge of textutils, fileutils, shellutils into coreutils
etc.). I definitely see no reason to blame AJ for this.

Looking at things the other way around: unfortunately it's true that many of
the changes in unstable haven't percolated to testing yet;
http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/update_excuses.html suggests testing
will see a large update once libc percolates through.
