+# <acronym title="Release Critical Bugs of the Week">RCBW</acronym> - #26
+
+[[!img rcbw-beast.png alt="RC bug count: 666" title="RCBW: the number of the beast"]]
+
+It *is* getting down, even though the current number is scary. My personal
+[RC bug count](http://bts.turmzimmer.net/details.php?bydist=both&sortby=packages&ignhinted=on&ignnew=on&ignpending=on&ignmerged=on&ignotherfixed=on&new=7&refresh=1800#podlators-perl)
+is not so mystical and as low as 205 RC bugs to go, which is quite encouraging.
+Without any further ado, here are this week squashes:
+
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 571817]]</span> - python-data - avoid
+  spurious py2.4 dep (sponsored NMU for Obey Arthur Liu)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 574020]]</span> - h5utils - switch to
+  octave 3.2 (sponsored NMU for Obey Arthur Liu)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 559609]]</span> - hstore-new - drop pgsql
+  8.3 package (sponsored NMU for Obey Arthur Liu)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 575384]]</span> - ethos - add inter-lib
+  dep to avoid dangling .so link (patch by Andreas Henriksson)
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 460338]]</span>, <span class="bug
+  strike">[[!debbug 565153]]</span> - apt-proxy - requested removal RM/RoQA
+  (see [[!debbug 576821]])
+* <span class="bug strike">[[!debbug 574557]]</span> - qpsmtpd - fix virtual
+  deps in init script (patch by Petter Reinholdtsen)
+
+Random points:
+
+* I've exploited quite a bit my (now ex) NM **Obey Arthur Liu**: 3 of the above
+  squashes come from him. I've been tempted to put Arthur on hold just to have
+  him fix some more RC bugs *g* (just kidding, of course)
+* It has been observed that
+  [**cheering up Gregor*8](http://info.comodo.priv.at/blog/archives/2010/04/#e2010-04-05T03_10_00.txt)
+  produces beneficial effects on the RC bug count, so why not doing it again?
+  :-)
+* Last week I forgot to mention Rhonda's regular **stable RC squashing**, and
+  in particular the
+  ["below 1000" milestone](http://alfie.ist.org/blog/debian/RC-squashing-2.en.html).
+  Cheers!
