Debian Weekly News: New release coming?

Author: JT Smith

It's at "Debian 2.2r2 will probably be released by this weekend. Anthony Towns and Ben Collins argued about this, with Anthony wanting get r2 out
within the promised time frame to fix the problems in r1, while Ben prefers to wait a week or two for testing, even more pending security fixes, and to let
the porters catch up so we do not "make another point release, with known issues". Anthony rejected this plan, stating that "it'll be out around the
24th, US holiday or not". This is a tough call -- more security holes will surely be found soon after we release -- but it's the kind of tough call that
Anthony as release manager has to make, even if his decision is not popular."
