following this rc bug fixing rate we might have wheezy announced as debian 7 around mid april (give it or take it)A bit of simple math put us at 99 RC bugs fixed since last and an average of about 2.4 RC bugs fixed per day (up from 1.8 ). Assuming a constant rate, we would be able to release in about 100 days or 3 months (plus 1 week or two) from now. If you want the release earlier than that, fix RC bugs even faster!
how does it affect lmde?
- (my understanding) but probably we won't have another UP before a month(ish) after the freeze is over and even that will depend on how testing will behave at the time
- users following testing and sid will have a few more boring months ahead
- the end of the deep-freeze can be more violent than expected (it's an immense backslash of packages to bring from sid/experimental to testing)
