As announced by Adam Barrat of the Debian Release Team on the project's mailing list on Monday, the Debian developers are now only waiting until all the changes to the distribution caused by the update to Python 2.6 have been integrated.
Yesterday evening, Philip Newborough announced the immediate availability for testing of the second Alpha release of the upcoming CrunchBang Linux 10 distribution. Dubbed Statler, the freshly cooked CrunchBang Linux 10 Alpha 2 build is now based on the Debian Squeeze operating system and, in sync with its repositories.
It was mentioned on this site once before, the Squeeze installer for PowerPC based machines is broken. The problem is described in this bug report. Yaboot itself is working fine but the problem is that the debian-installer writes wrong code in the yaboot configuration file.
The Debian release team are sounding the alarm: With only one month left before the planned release freeze, the number of critical bugs in Debian 6.0 Squeeze is still far too high to freeze development and create the next stable version of Debian.
