Hi everybody,

to avoid any chaos in our repos we should think about freezing core and extra. 
I would propose that we set a date till when we should fix the outstanding 
bugs in core packages.

Afaik there are only some problem with the new initscripts (e.g. hwclock 
problem) and I am unsure about netcfg. Shouldn't this be merged with 
initscripts? There seems to be some redundant code atm.

After that we should be able to create a first release candidate of the new 
iso. Then we shhould concentrate on testing those isos.

In parallel we have new libtool, gcc and friends in testing. So I would 
recommend that we only use testing for building packages and keep core/extra
