In other words: If you'd fix the technical problems, releasing stable
would become so easy that "proper" stable releases every 6 months would
be possible without too many problems.
And Debian should release every six months. Actually they need to do
minor releases every six months which are mostly package updates and minor
changes to the stable OS and have a major release every couple years where
they can work on multiyear projects like the Debian installer, or giving
dpkg an overhaul.
Unfortunatly Ubuntu is the only place to turn for a stable distro that
actually gets package updates. Nobel Debian should never follow anothers
example. That would be putting the user first, not the developer. That
would also make them probably the most popular distro too. It is by far the
best OS on the planet, but is never updated enough for users to want it more
If nothing else "Joseph Smidt" at least you seem to be someone who
cares enough about Debian to spend your time contemplating about it. But
this is a meritacrosy, and you are not a developer. I refer you to your
January post, no develpor, no merit.
