"stable" Sid?

Postby lolanoob » 2008-09-20 16:29

Hi, has anyone else noticed Sid is _*MUCH*_ more stable this time around, when Lenny is testing then, say, Etch, Srage, or Woddy was in testing? Or am I just crasy?

Lenny is frozen now. As I recall from Etch, when Testing become frozen, Sid becomes very very very stable itself. There was a discussion about this recently, if you want to search around for it.

Yes, I think Debian guys put their act together. The worst period for Sid was about when Ubuntu first appeared from what I remember, I don't know if there's any causational link...

Agreed. There's almost no difference between Sid and Lenny right now. Once Lenny is released, I expect there to be a flood into Sid.

I know with previous freezes, things in Sid seemed to have been relatively unchanged, where as this go round, there's pretty much been zero new packages the last few months. I know of a handful of apps that have had multiple major releases, while nothing has changed in Sid.

I dunno about you guys, but it kinda makes me nervous.

Sidux is trying to make Sid as stable as possible as well.

I started using their repos last night, so far they look pretty good.

Oh, once things start moving again, yes will be fun. The lack of movement is nerve racking for me. Just for me, I am using buggy apps, who have had versions released months ago that fix the problems, but they're still not available in the pools.
