RE: How was the slink --> potato switch? How will be potato --> woody? When?

| However,
| - may I know what happened during the slink-potato switch period?

I had a slink box that upgraded to potato just fine.

| - was there a sufficient grace period before slink was deleted
|   from the mirrors?

IIRC, potato will be moved to archive.debian.org and remain there like other
old releases.

| - may I know where to get information about potato to woody switch
|   plan? what will happen on "May 1st" ?

There should be an announcement from the debian-announce list, it will most
assuredly be in the debian weekly news, and posted prominently on the main
web site.

| - what is better: to use "potato" or "stable" in the production
|   systems' sources.list?

If you use stable, you will automagically be brought up to the current
release state, if you use potato, you will probably error out when potato is
moved to the archive.

| - is there a way to keep/ save all configuration files, and then
|   installing woody from scratch (which is faster)?

Instead of reinstalling (ala red hat), just to an 'apt-get update' and an
'apt-get dist-upgrade' and move up your packages like before.
