    Using unstable as pretty stable
    by Anonymous on Thursday, October 25 @ 08:17:42 BST

    Often, to take full advantage of bleeding edge hardware, the latest packages (like X) are neededand that are not in stable or testing. I ran unstable for a while now, but frequently a package breaks.It would be better to apt-get upgrade all packages that are older than 3 days. This way, the latest -minus 3 days- packages are installed and the broken ones kept out because most critical problems are fixed within 3 days.
    Is there an easy way of doing this?

    DanielS: And, uh, how would this be different to testing?
