Slightly different approach: However, for serious server deployments we in

A scheme like

  veryoldstable -> oldstable -> stable -> testing -> unstable

From the perspective of someone administrating several deployments a support
range of 5 years would be very welcome. Like Ubuntu LTS (so that nobody can
say, my mail is getting off-topic ;-) ). (The lifetime of lenny e.g. was
apprx. 3 years.)

Please check out these links if you want to make this happen. Probably
an initial target of supporting oldstable for the same length of time
as stable (instead of just a year) is a good first goal to achieve
before adding more supported suites.

This would already be awesome. (!!!)

I will take this pile of lecture with me and get to you once I am fully in the loop of already discussed contents.

THANKS!
