A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Mmmh, Am I the only one to be slightly surprised about the decision to release sooner rather than have a proper fix ? I loved the idea of release when it is ready.
Debian to keep leader, release etch sooner

The firmware problem is mainly political rather than technical. Resolving it will probably make Debian work technically worse in the short term, as they will have to remove some firmware.
The "release when ready" philosophy is usually used for technical and not political problems.
