Debian and its clones Last September, some of the Debian Linux distribution's leadership wanted to make sure that Etch, the next version of Debian, arrived on its December 4th due date. Almost two months later, though, according to the February 17th Release Critical Bug Report memo to the Debian Developers Announcement list, there are still 541 release critical bugs.

Debian is suffering continuing delays partly because of a slowdown by key developers.

So, who exactly are those key developers that you claim are slowing down their work and how exactly has this alleged slow down delayed the Etch release? You're parroting unproven allegations. Please provide the facts and details to prove your claims.

I find it strange that Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols is so worried about the Etch release when he apparently doesn't even use Debian himself. Why is he so concerned? People should know by now that Debian is only released when the developers think it's ready -- not a minute earlier.

A recent post in the debian-devel-announce mailing list suggests that the Etch release is progressing just fine.
