Dmitry, experimental isn't for putting things into Sid or Testing or Stable. I am sure yoush hasn't done a thing with it, as Experimental packages don't need to be maintained, period. Experimental is experimental. If you don't understand what the word means, please go look it up. In terms of Debian, it MAY be used for testing new ways to package things. It may also be used to put newer versions into the pool without screwing up a freeze. But your July issue is far before the Etch Freeze. Which in turn means (to me) it was either a courtesy thing that got put in Experimental, or that it isn't as easy as you'd think to "fix it up" to get that or a newer version into Etch. Perhaps, doing the upgrade from Woody-Etch would break, or maybe the version in Sarge is completely incompatible and has to be handled gingerly and is causing lots of heartache. -- greg, firstname.lastname@example.org I don't mow my lawn anymore. I just intimidate it into not growing. Though it is quite hard to intimidate grass, it has been around a long time and has quite an attitude about it.
