Developers of the Debian distribution of the Linux operating system have announced the release schedule for the latest version of Debian,
dubbed "Potato." As of January 2nd, no new packages will be accepted for inclusion in the Potato release. This will result in a "freeze" of
development January 16th, and allow for extensive testing beginning around the 22nd of January.
The first "Test Cycle" will start with a preparation phase lasting about 2-3 days in which the base disks and CD images are prepared. Next, the
team will begin testing the code, slated to last about 10-14 days, when bugs will be noted and fixes prepared, but no actual changes made.
Finally, an evaluation phase lasting 2-3 days will determine whether or not the distribution is acceptable for release. If deemed unfit, bugs
within the code will be fixed and the Test Cycle will begin anew.
"I hope that two Test Cycles will be enough; that will put the release near the end of February," says Richard Braakman, creator of the release
All packages submitted after the January 2nd deadline will be included in the next release, code named "Woody", keeping with the Toy Story
