The Code Freeze for Debian

The Code Freeze for Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has begun

“The code freeze for the next Debian release, code named “potato”, has begun”, says Richard Braakman, current Debian Release Manager. He expects the freeze process to take about two months.

Until the new version is released, there will be three distributions available on our servers: `stable’, `frozen’, and the new `unstable’.

“The new `unstable’ distribution, code named �woody� (Debian releases are code-named after characters from the movie Toy Story. Woody is the main character, the cowboy action figure.), was created today”, continues Richard. The `frozen’ and `unstable’ distributions start out with the same set of packages. While `unstable’ will be updated rapidly, `frozen’ will have only bugfixes applied in preparation for its release.

There is mutch rejoicing at the fozbaca organization.
