No such thing as bad press?

I tend to disagree.

Stuff like this sticks in peoples minds (i.e. it makes a great soundbite) and just gives the Red Hat weenies more ammunition against Debian in the corporate world, which is never good. It's hard enough as it is to get pointy-haired bosses to accept Debian as a technnologically superior alternative, without having people remember for the life of this stable release that it was plagued with a brief delay in releasing security updates.

It does shit me more than a little that the release was delayed for so long because the security infrastructure was the supposed blocker, and come the release, and oh look, the security infrastructure is a problem...
