Future releases should also contain an installation system, which is

Welcome to this year's 11th issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian
community.
Some of the topics covered in this issue include:

 * Should Security Enhanced Linux be priority "standard"?
 * Lenny Upgrade advisor
 * ... and much more.

Release update

Luk Claes [1]reported on the progress regarding the release of the new
stable release Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny". While there are still a
lot of release critical bugs to be fixed, Lenny is in good enough shape
to call for upgrade tests and work on the release notes. Regarding the
upgrade tests, he especially asks to test the Linux 2.6.26 kernel.
Regarding the release notes, he asks that any issues that should be
documented should be reported as bug against the [2]release-notes
pseudo package. Further discussion will happen on the [3]debian-doc
mailing list.
