Debian Sarge release date

Happy birthday to me. Andi Barth of the Debian project projected that Sarge will be released as stable on June 6. The current stable release is Woody, which was released in July 2002 and is seriously showing its age. So to this I say, it’s about time.

What I don’t look forward to is upgrading all of our servers at work. We’ve currently got two production machines running Sarge but the rest are running Woody with a patchwork of packages from outside the official release. This will be a big project, especially since we’ve got a real shortage of hardware for backup servers (read: one machine) in the event the upgrade introduces problems.
