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. (!!!)
