My understanding is that it's kind of a background project until the final versions of 19 are released.

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. - Max Planck

Debian:
Its ready when its ready!

"ETA" isn't in the Debian vernacular.
debian or bust

Straight Debian + needed non-free stuff

I've been running straight Debian now for the last year or so. the only thing I really notice is -- some of the KDE related programs don't work as well -- e.g. Kate, Gwenview. as a result -- I'm using slightly different programs more recently -- Shotwell rather than Gwenview. I'm still undecided about this switchover: Gwenview is a very nice program -- but it woks better in LMDE. Kate has some good features -- particularly in joining lines and word wrap.

I have my own utility -- in C -- that does a better job on reflow for text. should I be a member of GIT ?

I've been running OPERA pretty much all the time now. Straight Debian has only Firefox-esr -- which is a bit dated. I loaded the up to date Firefox -- but -- it blows up the X-Window when they do a plug-in update. and.... CLAWS now, instead of T-Bird.

I'm still planning to update the Guest computer to LMDE/3 -- probably in August. It needs to be done in-between semesters at GVSU so my daughter does not run into anything that gives her trouble.

if you watch the dates on traffic on this forum -- you'll note -- it's not real busy.

I've mentioned at other times that in my view MINT should drop the Ubuntu related Dists and stick with the LMDE version. this is, of course just MHO. The wonderful good folks running MINT know a lot more ab out this than I do .
