    Hi all,

    With less than three weeks to go until the tentative release date, I
    would love to confirm the date by now, but there is a serious issue with crucial infrastructure (cdbuilder.d.o). Apart from this issue (and what
    it means for solving the debian-installer blocking issues in time), I'm
    not aware of other blocking issues, so let's hope the teams involved can recover in time.

    Albeit there is some progress, we think it better for the people
    involved to now say that we will *not* release on July 31.

    Unfortunately, that means that we have to start looking for a new date
    again. Assuming what we'll learn in the upcoming week or two is good, I propose to already start the list below with two weeks after the
    previous date. Upcoming time is around DebConf, I can imagine it could
    even be an advantage, especially as that's on-line, let's see.

    14 August (day before DebCamp)
    21 August (last day of DebCamp)

    28 August (DebConf)

    Count me for the same as Sledge and Andy Simpkings as far as the 28th goes
    and I can't do anything without them. If we do have to postpone until Sept. it'll be a shame but, hey, it's summer and stuff happens.

    All best, as ever,

    Andy C.
