The choice of referring to debian projects solely by unsortable codenames when it is generally known the release order is hiding information and stupid.
The names used to refer to successive releases of the SAME THING should be sortable, so that users can determine the order. When referring to an imminent release, one shuld use turns of phrase such as:
"Lenny", the upcoming release of Debian Stable, currently in release process, optimistically expected to complete this year.
Of course this is insufficient, since the version number has undoubtedly been selected by now and should also be invoked, regardless of whatever phantom menaces you can conjure about CD-Rom sales. And the codename, as above needs to be sortable.
