This has been discussed quite long on the mailing list.

Sure, but you can't just assume, that we have enough time to wait for
your stuff. Building and testing a CD takes about 3 hours on my
machine (including compilation of boot-floppies etc.). We also have to
do a new source code CD, since we have a new (boot-floppies)
source-code package with your changes.

I know. The bad thing is, that you left the documentation in the CVS
in a state, where it didn't compile, even though you knew, that Roland
and myself wanted to build the stuff last weekend. So we had to fix
your stuff to get at least something done. (unfortunatly
dpkg-buildpackage doesn't stop, if it can't build some part of the
docs, so we saw it, after we made the first images.)

In fact, I am building the CD again now, since there were other
problems yesterday, so if there won't be some problem with the newly
generated boot-floppies, your stuff will be in.

We have to send it out tommorrow, better today.
