Re: Re: Is oldstable security support duration something to be proud of?
No, support for Ubuntu LTS in general is longer. Ubuntu LTS is supported
for 3 years on the desktop, which is more than Debian 3.1.

This is longer than Debian.

These are all shorter, except for Ubuntu server LTS.
No. Besides Debian not ranking in the top half, Luk Claes changed the
discussion to the total duration of security support. The bug is about
the sentence about oldstable security support.
So your complaint is that, even though Debian's security team does
actually rank in the top half of the examples you put forward (and I'm
not even going to discuss the fact that the 2 that do longer security
support have paid people doing it, not volunteers), they have nothing
to be proud of?
And denigrating the work they do and telling them they
have nothing to be proud of is good why?
It isn't good, which is why I don't do it.
