Additional 'update' CD for potato? Contributed by eptalon on Wednesday, May 23 @ 18:40:26 BST
I was recently made painfully aware that our 'stable system (=potato) features applications that are rather oldish, and that some people have worked hard to make newer applications available to those potato users that do not want to switch to another version (woody, sid, (progeny?)).
Hence I thought - why not put together a CD-image containing all those newer applications in potato-friendly versions, for those that lack the resorces to compile them by themselves.
It might help debian stay competeitive while not scaring away those content with the way it currently works?
rob: But aren't you basically creating a woody/sid cd here. Many new programs depend on new libraries. Where do draw the line? Everything for Potato's libc? The backporting only works for individual packages. And remember that stable should be stable and bringing in these packages would lead to many instabilities.
