Bug#188896: Clear security/critical bug support policy needed


I submitted a bug report that requests establishing a security policy
for Debian Linux distributions. If you believe this issue is important,
please send your comments to 188896@bugs.debian.org


Package: security.debian.org

Version: 3.0+

Debian should establish a clear security/critical bug support policy
and post it on your support/security page where it's easy to find.

Having something like the following would be very helpful to all Debian
users (and developers):

"Debian's security/critical bugs policy for Debian Linux distributions
is to provide errata  maintenance for 24 months (or whatever) from the
date of the release. End of Life dates for errata maintenance for
currently supported Debian products are listed below:
Debian GNU/Linux (woody) 	  	July 30, 2004?"

This way everyone knows what to expect well in advance and has enough
time to prepare, there are no surprises.
