He seemed Stretch to have just come out so recently but not out of the mountains Buster.

That's a cool name for #12. I've never liked the name Buster, I may even skip the release because of it and go straight to Bullseye when it reaches maturity.

This is quite an important post. By the looks of things Buster will go stable around next summer.

Compare Stretch's timeline

2016-11-05: Transition freeze (general freeze of transitions)
2017-01-05: "Soft" freeze (no new packages, no re-entry, normal migrations)
2017-02-05: Full freeze (official announcement)
2017-06-03: Remaining RC bugs tagged stretch-ignore or stretch-will-remove
2017-06-17: Initial release: 9.0 (press release)


With Buster's:

* 2019-01-12 - Transition freeze
* 2019-02-12 - Soft-freeze
* 2019-03-12 - Full-freeze


Mind you, surely nothing can be as bad as 'Bionic Beaver'.
