Configuration

,----[ Quote ]
| In Debian GNU/Linux there are packaging
| policies in place to prevent one package from
| fiddling with the configuration of another.
| Simple. That other OS makes things difficult
| for everyone but they keep on doing the same
| stupid things for ackwards compatibility
| meaning e messed up and we are not going to
| fix it

Debian Squeeze Pre-review

,----[ Quote ]
| Every two years or so, Debian puts out a new
| "stable" release. This is my favorite
| distribution because of the minimal number of
| bugs and the huge software repositories and
| the powerful package manager. Right now,
| Lenny (5.0) is the stable release, and
| Squeeze (6.0) is in testing. Sometime "soon"
| Squeeze will get frozen, which means the
| regular flow of package migration will stop,
| and from then on it will only get bug and
| security fixes through a method of back-
| porting. Once the number of "release
| critical" bugs is reduced to an acceptable
| level (which used to mean 0, more recently it
| means 50 or so), then Squeeze will be
| released as the new stable version.
