That's been my attitude, but... while most of our stuff is running
Squeeze, which provides some breathing room, our most stable production
server (mail, list hosting) is a Xen virtual machine that's still
running Lenny (wiring postfix, spamassassin, amavisd and a list manager
together is no fun, and seems to require manual "plumbing" every time -
it's working, so I've been putting off a migration as long as
possible). But... now that updates are no longer available for Lenny,
it seems like it's time to bite the bullet. I'd just as soon wait for
Jessie to become stable and migrate everything - then leave it alone for
a few years. Just thinking about the impacts of all the low-level
changes makes me wince.

I'm kind of reminded of spending two days to figure out that udev had
changed the device numbering associated with a new ethernet card - which

the back of my neck are warning me that my next Debian upgrade is going
to bring lots of similar pain.
A clean install fixes that. But that is a nightmare to recover
everything back to working order as well, so I pretty much leave our
server the heck alone and just update security packages. Ric
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
