Doing things at the last minute is not really adviseable: we would
risk missing the boat.

I would like to point out that we do have the option of uploading an
unreleased snapshot of to-be-2.92 to Debian whenever we like.  We can
follow it up with the final release if we want.  Whether that is a
good idea depends on the current state of the upstream branch and
whether changes are likely before an official 2.92 upstream release.


Ian Jackson <ijackson at>   These opinions are my own.

If I emailed you from an address or, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
