Debian do not officially ship a distribution mixing in packages from backports.org or debian-volatile.

Uhm... I beg to differ. debian-volatile is an official part of Debian and - to the best of my knowledge - activated by default with newer installations, So how can using that repository lead to an unpure blend?


If indeed activated by default in official releases, then debian-volatile packages targeted those releases are pure.

One could even argue, that as backports is slowly being integrated to be an official part to, using that repository is quite pure ;)

If by "quite" you mean "...to a large degree" then there is no such thing: Purity (in the context of "Debian Pure Blend") cannot be bend, be expressed in percentages or similar.

If backports are officially included by default, then they are pure. Otherwise not.

...and if that happens, I stop working on "Debian Pure Blends" and start working on a new concept: Debian Sane Blends!
