Because of the runnign IRC talk, this thread has been quite short. However, this maybe shows that some egenral agreement pops about this issue, after all..:-) Most concerns have been raised about my proposed use of "branch" for talking about stable/testing/unstable. "Suite" seems better...suited, indeed. So, now the proposal becomes: Distribution: used to talk about Debian in general, whichever suite is used Suite : used to talk about stable, testing and unstable and explain differences between all of them or the ways they are developed Release : used to talk about the successive releases of Debian as a distribution: potato, woody, sarge....as well as the release updates Version : used when using numerical version numbers (3.1r2, etc..) If there are no strong objections in -project, I'm opened to suggestions about the Right Way to handle the further life of this proposal, to make it alittle bit more "official": -conclude it and post in -devel-announce...:-) -make the discussion wider in -devel and continue it there -continue it elsewhere -continue it here in -project (in case some feel that some issues are not sorted out) I also have no clear views about the Right Place to put these conclusions so that all Debian documents progressively adopt this terminology. Suggestions welcomed.
