Re: Poll on the wiki (was About terminology for stable/testing/unstable)

Allright. I'll take the first preference, mine, and attempt to convince
maintainers that it's right since it didn't involve voting.

Christian chose suite before I posted ""suite" vs "branch"". From an IRC

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_.
Voting is a pretty poor way to determine proper terminology.
Like which one? I checked the list of non-pending, non-patched and
non-"new" RC bugs and found these:
Fwiw, dak has always used 'suite', and speaking for myself, I'm
disinclined to change terminology unless there's pretty good reason why
to do so.
Anyway, I fully agree with Pierre in this; how about fixing some RC
libkwiki-perl #411027. Not interested, should probably be removed.
jasper #413041. Upstream security bug that should affect stable. Not
mozilla-tabextensions #412314. Not interested, should be removed.
redhat-cluster #412862 / #411787. Not interested, should probably be
zope-cachefu #411093 and zope3 #411472. Not interested. Unfortunate, but
may be removed, so not actually RC.
That only leaves openbsd-inetd, with which I may try helping, although I
don't use inetd so I'm not best placed.
