What sort of server will it be? What particular software set do you
need to run on it?
I've a related question. Are the source packages for Debian amd64
coming from 'testing' or 'unstable'?
In honesty I rarely have much trouble with systems running 'testing'
with parts of 'unstable' and even 'experimental'. The occasional
breakage has been downgradeable... Perhaps for a very important
production server you should have both a staging system and the real
thing, so that you can test updates on the staging box before putting
them onto the deployment server. Maybe that could be done with a
chroot? Has anyone tried something like this in real life?
