    Can something only go into unstable when all the debs for all the 10+ platforms are ready? Still don’t see why XF4.2 and KDE3 for i386 aren’t in unstable? Surely it would be better to throw in a semi-working version in there and everyone work at fixing bugs in that, instead of having multiple debs all over the place or compiling your own?

    People comment about not putting broken stuff in Sid, but isn’t that why it’s called “unstable”? No-one even expects anything to be rock solid until it’s passed through “testing” into “stable”. Plenty of apps get thrown into Sid as soon as, why not these?

    Ok, KDE3 isn’t an essential upgrade for most. But XF4.2 is for some people. This is rediculous! Wasn’t XF4.2 released back in January? What month is it now? How about something for i386?
