The problem is that your "history" doesn't match the experience of any
one else participating in this thread. You keep making assertions about
testing being broken, sometimes with "hundreds of broken dependencies".
Since one of the key criterion of packages entering testing is
"dependencies are correct and fulfillable", this strikes most of us as
unlikely. I won't claim testing has never had a broken depends, but it's
very rare, and never hundreds of packages.
It's a basic point of science that the person making the unusual claims
needs to provide the data to back it up.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
