        The version of Debian that is intended for general use is the
 one we call stable.

        There are other distribution variants, which are a part of our
 development and release process -- and the primary goal of that is to
 help us create the next release.  People who want to help us in
 improving the next release are encouraged to test those, as long as
 they understand that what the are doing is being guinea pigs, and
 helping the community by improving the next version.

        If this is not something the users are comfortable with, they
 should select a distribution that better fits their needs.  Debian is
 not for everyone; no distribution is.

No spitting on the Bus! Thank you, The Mgt.
