Re: Logging practices (and why does it suck in Debian?)
The trouble is, unstable packages tend to rely on a new version of
things like libc6 and other important shared libraries that I don't
want to upgrade because it would destabilize the whole system.
What I'd like to see is some kind of "snapshot" status where it was
linked against the "stable" versions of all the common libraries etc.
I couldn't agree more. apt-get will install postgres 6.5 in potato.
Postgres has gone through two versions since (7.0 and 7.1).
It kind of defeats the purpose of apt if you have manually build everything
anyway. Especially considering that most sites use a combination of
apache/php/postgres all of which have newer versions.
