Re: Re: Is oldstable security support duration something to be proud of?
Ur, I didn't choose my distribution solely based on the duration of
security support for obsolete releases, fortunately. This is not a
disagreement about Debian policy, just that announcement.

I don't see any reasons why the security team must not be proud of the
work they are doing. I think, that one must consider the fact that the
security team does not owe anythig to anyone. What they are doing can
be taken as a hobby that nevertheless is quite useful.
In Russia we have a clever proverb: "Don't like it - don't eat it".
If you disagree with Debian policy, if you think the security team has
nothing to be proud of, that other distros' security support is better
organized - do not use Debian.
