Actually, we've had important machines running on potato since November
without serious problems.  Most of the showstoppers have related to the
non-i386 builds, I think, which we do not use.  The first potato test
cycle has been going really badly, with delays affecting the boot floppies
and the CD image making, but I am confident that the next test cycle will
go much better and that the release is a matter of weeks now.

If you are interested, we maintain a Debian mirror

and autobuild a set of unofficial i386 CD images each morning at 0700 EDT
