    Debian is phasing out support for Debian 2.1 (slink). We believe that
    this will have a minimal impact on our user community as we expect that
    most slink users have already upgraded to potato. We had originally
    announced that support would end Sep 30, 2000. In response to feedback
    to our earlier announcement we have decided to continue support through
    30 Oct, 2000. This will include packages for m68k and i386 only, for
    the most severe security problems. There will be no further support for
    the sparc and alpha platforms; sparc and alpha users should upgrade to
    Debian 2.2 (potato) immediately.
    We value your input during this transitional phase. Please direct your
