Okay. So its just that some maintainers at least for some applications prefer to push to sid - the Amarok case I mentioned above - but more usually they prefer to push to experimental. Granted, basket and kmymoney are likely not to be used by as many users than Amarok, but still I didn't understand that difference in package handling. > Just wait for Squeeze to be released as stable  and then everything > will get back to normal. For me its mostly not a problem: I didn't hesitate to take stuff from experimental-snapshots at qt-kde.debian.net so I am using from experimental what I see fit ;). But for my workstation at work, some backports would be nice then probably. But heck even there I enabled sid - at lower priority - and experimental repositories - with high enough priority for self updating. I am just more cautious and installing less from experimental than on my laptops. >  > <http://news.debian.net/2011/01/22/join-us-in-the-countdown-to-squeeze > /> Yeah, nice!
