Re: Philosophical question
I upgrade weekly. Since the ftp method in deselect makes this painless,
it is no trouble at all. Going from bo to hamm is likely to be a problem
for some and WILL be a major source of traffic on this list but as far as
incremental upgrades within a major release, weekly is fine for me. It
actually makes it EASIER because only a few packages are installed
per week vs. dozens of packages if it is put off for several weeks.
I also have one system running unstable that I pull the package list for
and upgrade almost daily since hamm seems to be still very dynamic.
