[Thanks Anthony for the link, it seems that I was just reinventing the
I completely agree with you that there must not be more than
one major transition in CUT releases when you say "I hope very much
that everybody involved in such a scheme will also commit to spending
at least 40 hours on testing upgrade paths and helping edit the
release notes at the time of a release."
I think that in the CUT framework, the upgrade path from
stable to CUT-n converges to the upgrade path from stable to stable+1
as n grows. Of course it does not so naturally, but it will by the
concerted work of the Debian developers, by not making two major
transitions in the same CUT-serie.
