I can use my time to do both, and that's what i'm doing. Sometimes
it's hard to figure out because i don't like to participate on these
Debian "mailing list parties " (aka: flamewars). I don't think there
are too many RC bugs, and it seems that the release team schedule
looks sane until now. I'm asking for some more work towards Etch not
new gratuitous RC bugs.

Anyway, i think you're suggesting to throw out SELinux support and LSB
3.1 compliance for Etch, right ? Based on Carlos' progress (as i cited
in my first message), we should put some effort to deliver a better
Etch with the current schedule. I don't think it will be possible to
SELinux and probably other pet release goals thought.
