Re: Dreamhost dumps Debian

My point of view is that Debian Stable should be aiming for whatever
they believe the sweet point between stable and so usable without having
problems is and maximising security. Aka maximising productivity and
safety with no other concerns or compromises.

Large hosting companies not having made their scripts etc. good enough
to ride out upgrades well should have nothing to do with any decision.

In fact they are best positioned man power wise to be able to set up a
test rig and then deploy compared to small hosting companies.

Does anyone even know for sure what the decision to switch was actually
based upon?
