    Preparing Debian GNU/Linux 2.2r3

    Martin Schulze sent this to debian-devel-announce last night.

    some of you eventually already noticed that attempts are being made to
    get a new revision of potato aka “Debian GNU/Linux stable” released
    soon. Revision 2.2r2 of our stable distribution was released on
    December 5th which is three months ago. Given the amount of security
    issues which have been fixed since then a new revision should have
    been released quite a while ago. To get the thing going I stepped
    forward to help Anthony Towns to release2.2r3 soon.

    There is still lot to do and joey made it clear that all of this will checked by Anthony Towns before released. According to joey on the highest priority are uploads that contained security fixes or fixes to critical bugs (dataloss etc.)
    Joey also mentioned an URL to list of package candidates (so far)
    The full mail can be found, as usual, on the list archives

    Can we have some sort of time frame in which it might be released? I’m about to re-install my setup of two years and would rather wait if there are a lot of fixes. Does apt automatically get the patches r3 would include?

    Is 2.2r3 going to include XFree86 4.x and GIMP 1.2.x?

    yeah, that would be something that i would really like to see on Debian r2.2.3. Also I’m about to swap my actual machine which an Athlon 1000Mhz @ 1200Mhz on an Asus A7M with 128MB DDR RAM. Would a dual pentium III 1.0Ghz with 256MB Run smoother than my actual system ? e.g I have a GeForce 2 Ultra.. please can anyone comment on this subject ?

    Still waiting on my e-mail back from the DebianPlanet server for my username signup, but here’s an APT source to add — this will get you all stable security-related updates as they come out (well, at least as long as we’re all using potato… edit appropriately if the versions rev.) :

    deb http://security.debian.org potato/updates main contrib non-free

    So you can install 2.2r2 and then add this source for the latest security updates.

    you can get the same updates to any potato version, by either using security.debian.org as one of your sources or just using plain mirror lines, the same updates get incorporated to the normal dist when this kind of releases happend.
