Thank you for keeping stable just the way it is!
This goes out to all Debian developers/advocates.
Despite my other post with a question about using testing in production,
I fully understand the way stable is, and I greatly appreciate it!
Being able to run a stable environment without having to worry about
updated packages that suddenly change setup, but at the same time
still receive security updates are just one of those things that make
Debian completely superior.
People who complain about Debian release policy just doesn't understand
what Debian stable is about.
Having run a lot of servers in a BSD/Linux environment I can fully
appreciate the stable branch of Debian.
The stable releases fills a niche that no other FOSS distribution fills
as far as I know.
In all other distributions and *BSD's I have worked with, running a
security update for a third party package means that you are almost
always forced to pull the server out of production, and you have to
figure out, if the security update also brings some other updates that
change the setup/options.
Being able to keep a system updated with security without having to
worry about changes in the setup makes it possible for sysadmins to
actually do other stuff than maintaining servers.
I wonder how many sysadmins who doesn't know this about Debian.
Anyway, thank you very very much!!
