The next two years from now?
OOo 3.2.0 (planned End of Noiv. 2009)
OOo 3.2.1 (End of Feb, 2010?)
OOo 3.3.0 (planned End of May, 2010)
.0s should be avoided for Debian stable, the are almost always full of
bad bugs/regressions, as we see e.g. in 3.1.0, too.
So this would mean, that squeeze will release with 3.1.x (3.1.0 release in Apr
2009), which will be several months old when squeeze releases. Would it be
possible to package 3.2.0 for unstable, and package 3.2.1 when it is released,
together with a freeze exception by the release team before you upload 3.2.0 to
unstable? Would the release team be willing to give such an exception?
