Re: Radius choices now that freeradius has been dropped from woody.
i agree with you that those side effects are possible, but i really think that
the best of the world is a good trade off. We run quite a bunch of debian based
systems, all on potato actually, but all of them runs some soft which are needed,
form unstable. The thing is to test before pushing the update to the prod servers.
this is, i totally agree, sometimes a pain, but this is really , imho, the thing
to run with.
