Re: Uploading to both stable and unstable

I must have seen a little announce somewhere.

There's nothing about volatile in the Developer's Reference.

As for stable, the Developer's Reference says:

"Even once a distribution is considered stable, a few bugs inevitably remain
? that's why the stable distribution is updated every now and then. However,
these updates are tested very carefully and have to be introduced into the
archive individually to reduce the risk of introducing new bugs. You can find
proposed additions to stable in the proposed-updates directory."

No mention of the scope of proposed-updates.

Please tell me about the scope of proposed-updates, except from security
updates. Thanks.
