The CUT proposal is about having regular working snapshots of testing.
While I'd like to see a rolling distribution, the work of separating it
from testing is separate to the work of having cut releases.
If we create a rolling release, the CUT snapshots will probably be the
entry point for new installations. For example, a user would download
the latest CUT, and set the sources to rolling.
If CUT is ready to be publicized, then it may well be time to see if we
can get a true rolling release going. However, there's no reason that
not having rolling should stop CUT, or that CUT would no longer be
useful because we haven't figured out rolling yet.
