Re: m68k not a release arch for etch; status in testing, future plans?

Roman Zippel a écrit :

Hmmm, I doubt that this work out well. It's just a feeling. Most m68k users are using stable, I'd say, so a stable release would fit
best the needs of our users. Forcing them to use testing might be a bad
Having it be a "stable" release means handling security updates for 1.5
years or more, which can be a significant amount of work, since it has
to be in addition to the ongoing effort to maintain testing/unstable.

No doubt of that, but how how does a theoretical set of "release criteria" automatically ensure this work is done in the future?

I wouldn't call the release criteria "theoretical" (they're even starting to get applied), but they don't automatically ensure that the security work is done. They should help to limit the work though.
