Well, considering the smiley I guess you see the problem. A direct
consequence of this problem is bug #57146. Of course we want people to
upgrade to the latest stable version. But having "stable" instead of
"slink" or "potato" in the default sources.list is not the way to do
Changing this in potato won't prevent accidental release upgrades for
slink users, but that's no reason not to change this in potato.
