This rely on the premices that at least some options will allow to release
sarge sooner. Unfortunately discussions on debian-vote involving the
release manager and the ctte had made clear to me that none of the
ballot options will have positive effect on the release of sarge, making
the exercise rather pointless, the reason being, all the options focus
on the previous SC change and side-step the real issue which is the
change of the release policy. I see no evidence that any changes of the
SC will imply change in the release policy allowing to release sarge
So currently, I feel that "Further discussion" is the option that will
do the least damage to the release. I could be convinced otherwise, but
I need proofs before considering any change to the SC.
Imagine a large red swirl here.
