It is strange to watch for the first time a debian release to happen, without being part of a though time schedule, and with the possibilities to sleep uninterrupted etc. And it is a good feeling to see how well it went.

I want to congratulate the people who made it happen, especially the people who worked for it for many months or even years. To avoid the pain of not mentioning someone who did lot of work, I restrict myself to congratulating my successors in the release team - a better list of people is part of a mail Marc just sent out. Thanks, and well done!
