Why does "stable" point to "rex"?
I'm a new Debian user (but my Linux usage goes back to 0.93), and
seem to have entered the picture just as 1.2 is being refined. What
follows is a question asked out of ignorance on my part!
According to the FAQ, the "rex" directory is for unstable and
development distributions, and the README at ftp.debian.org:debian/
says "bo" is for unstable software. Then, I see that "rex" is
supposedly the "stable" distribution of Debian 1.2. Am I missing
something? According to the FAQ, "buzz" is supposed to be
the latest stable release, so why doesn't "stable" point to
that rather than "rex?"
Ultimately, my question is, is "rex" considered a stable release
of Debian 1.2? My guess is "yes", it's just that I'm getting
confused (and it ain't hard to confuse me!).
