Sarge frozen

Sarge ist frozen as of today. This is about 2 years and 3 months late (at least in my point of view). Woody was released (Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2002 23:59:59 +0200), so half a year later would have been the perfect date for the next release (or even a year). So, the last Debian stable is more than 2 and a half years old, which is just plain unacceptable. Hope that Etch will be out there sooner.

The former Debian Project leader Martin Michlmayr had some interesting points about time based releases and I’d love to see Debian adapt a half year (or maybe a year, letting the half year stuff beeing done by Ubuntu) release cycle.
