Re: RFD: Draft for a volatile.d.o policy (was: Re: Updating scanners and filters in Debian stable (3.1) )



The draft looks good, Sven.  Please also include target # 5 as follows.

> Draft for a volatile.debian.org packaging and update policy.
> 
> Target:
> 
> volatile.debian.org (or short: v.d.o) is intended to be a repository for 
> packages which degrade over time with respect to their usefulness. These 
> include, but might not be limited to:
> 1) Virus scanners (clamav etc.)
> 2) Intrusion detection systems and security scanners (snort, nessus,
>    etc.)
> 3) Anti-Spam software (spamassassin etc.)
> 4) Tools which are so closely related to a software in 1-3 that they
>    might need to be updated when a new version of the related software
>    is introduced to v.d.o

5) Architecture-independent data which depend on the contents of the
stable release itself.

Refer to [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2004/09/msg00951.html]
for rationale.
