Well, no. The process is this -- we test the fix on our machines, make a
package, verify that in theory that it can install on Debian 3.0 (in case we
developed it on some other machine), put the package up on the machine, and
ask on the admin mailing list for the package to be installed. This last
step usually takes less than a day so it's not really a problem.

After it's installed, I make the package available somewhere and mail a
dozen web mirror admins so that they can update their machines, too. And the
patch, too, of course, in case some of the mirrors still don't run Debian :)

Hey, as soon as you like. :)

Well, IE is fixed not to request "*", but it still requests "en-us" etc.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
