Re: Debian's branches and release model


Great list, contains a lot of what I have to say.

The fact that debian is laser focused on stable, and does not officially encourage using testing as a rolling release (as evidenced from a couple replies to this email chain), yet there are still people doing it, is a testament of how good debian is. Just don't abandon us:)

If testing is part of QA, then popularizing it should benefit. Staying closer to upstream releases gets my vote. Quote from the page, "Looks like it's time for action! Somebody (maybe the Debian project leader) should pick up the hot potato and compile a list of the proposals which are going to be adopted. Flame wars ensue. Then Debian emerges renewed, as a phoenix from the ashes."
