All is looking good for Debian to release Lenny today (Saturday 14th).
This will lead to a surge of uploads to Debian unstable, which will then
show up in MoM/DaD and elsewhere. This doesn't necessarily mean that we
want all of the uploads in Ubuntu.

Please bear in mind that we are a few days away from Feature Freeze for
this cycle, and so we should be starting to limit the uploads that we 

Many Debian maintainers will hold back on any upload from freeze until 
the release, which has been quite some time now. This means we may well
want some of the changes introduced in the Debian uploads, so reviewing
them may be worthwhile.

This is just a continuation of the usual rule that changes from Debian
should be judged against where we are in our release cycle, but the
exceptional timing of events led us to point it out.
