It doesn't. <flame mode on> So, you're unhappy with the fact that it takes quite a while for Debian to come up with a release. You've assumed a reason for that ("there's too much"), but haven't done any effort to check whether that actually _is_ the reason. Moreover, in an effort to try to "fix" the problem, you blatantly show no interest in any of our users except yourself and suggest to throw out even the most critical parts of _any_ system, the documentation. Yet, you expect people to agree with you? Sorry, that's too much asked. <flame mode off> If you really think it takes too long for Debian to release, there are much better ways to work towards a solution than just to throw out more than half our packages. I suggest you subscribe to firstname.lastname@example.org (if you haven't already) and try to be helpful there; I suppose that'd be a lot better way to make sure Debian releases more often.  If you have, I haven't seen it.  Calling much of the system "crap" and suggesting to throw out everything you, personally, would never use is what I would describe as "caring only about yourself". -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
