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.

Etch will be released when it's done. Where's the problem with that?

Also, there are 103 open bugs, NOT 541.

Looking at that graph one wonders what happened about a year ago. Did ATI sneak release a driver or what?

IIRC, the increased number of bugs one year ago was caused by the modular X implementation. But that was a problem that all distros had to fight with at one point or the other.
