Re: Poll on the wiki (was About terminology for stable/testing/unstable)
Pierre Habouzit a écrit :
Christian chose suite before I posted ""suite" vs "branch"". From an IRC
discussion we had later, he was ambivalent between the two terms.

At least a few votes would be welcome.
From Jargon File (4.4.4, 14 Aug 2003) [jargon]:
[originally BSD, now common] Technical disputes over minor, marginal
issues conducted while more serious ones are being overlooked. The
implied image is of people arguing over what color to paint the
bicycle shed while the house is not finished.
TTBOMK Christian already chosed suite IIRC, which is a good term, the
discussion is from May 2006 for god's sake !
Yet "more discussion" is currently equal with "suite" on the poll. So
please vote, rather than $PICK_YOUR_JARGON_TERM.
IOW: We just don't need to bring this up _again_.
