Following a very rough methodology:
For updates in leaf packages with a patch available for stable-security
four updates should be sufficient for the updated packages and tests.
Sometimes the update is more involved (e.g. because it requires additional
changes to be backported) or a lot of reverse deps need to be tested, then
it may take up to a day. Let's assume that one third of the updates are of
Then there's the odd exception which might still take more time, but that's
hard to factor in (some kernel updates e.g.).
Filtering out the unsupported packaged this leaves us with 160 packages,
so approx 100-110 days.
