First official Test Cycle for Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 started

“The first official Test Cycle has started today”, said Richard
Braakman, current Debian Release Manager. This is the next
milestone in the release-cycle of “potato”, which will become
Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 when it is released.

The next few days are dedicated to getting boot-floppies and CD
images ready for testing. No uploads are allowed into potato except
the ones that are substantial for these two systems.

After that, the entire distribution will be tested for about 10
days. During the period, no changes will be made to the archive.
Following these tests comes an evaluation period, during which
either potato will be released as-is, or new fixes will be
installed into the archive and a new Test Cycle will start.
