The way I understand it, but I asked for clarification and
confirmation in my previous message [1], is that all « updates » goes
into -proposed-updates/, but the one who need to be quickly applied
into the distribution (but aren't security updates) are duplicated
from -proposed-updates/ into -updates/. Theses are the updates who
can't wait and must be applied between the point releases. Then, when
point releases occurs, all packages in -proposed-updates/ moves into
the stable repository of the distribution. They are automatically
removed from -proposed-updates/. This isn't true for the -updates/
repository as it requires manual pruning. Nonetheless, all packages in
-updates/ went into the stable repository (from the -proposed-updates
they originated from) when the point-release occurred. So nothing is
lost. But is that right ?
