Debian Import Freeze

Hi folks,

as you might have noticed, we're in Debian Import Freeze (DIF) right now.

What does that mean?
First off all, quite simply, that automatic syncs of unmodified ubuntu 
packages from unstable are turned off.

However it also means, that we'll need to look a bit ahead towards stabilizing 
universe, as the first alpha releases are upcoming (alpha1 is already out). 
This means, that more and more people will be using intrepid, and hence apart 
from the still ongoing tasks of

- get packages merged
- clear the sponsors queue
- review packages on REVU

we now should also look forward to
- clear unmet dependencies
- check the archive for FTBFS
- bring critical fixes from unstable in
- fix bugs

Also, since autosyncs are turned off, the only way to get a new version from 
unstable in is to file a sync request. However please don't overuse this 
feature just because there is a new unstable version, but rather take a look 
if there are really changes worth to be picked up.
