Approximately 40%-50% of debian desktop users use testing or unstable. For example, compare popcon numbers of kdebase . kdebase-bin is available in all flavours (lenny, squeeze and sid) - 16124. libkonq5 is available only in squeeze/sid and it is pretty essential - 6013. Quite similar numbers in case of amarok . amarok is available in all flavours (6669), amarok-utils only in squeeze/sid - 3413 (though amarok-utils can be installed independently of amarok so the number is a bit higher). > BTW, why does a freeze imply that no new versions arrive in unstable? > Wouldn‘t it be enough to stop the automatic migration from unstable to > testing during freeze? Unstable is a preferred way for packages to migrate to testing. Therefore, unstable should stay "compatible" with testing during freeze.  http://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=kdebase  http://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=amarok -- Modestas Vainius <email@example.com>
