abrotmanurgency?
ctcp_deathi didn't know we had urgency levels..
kingsleyabchirk: "urgency" is mentioned in at least some packages' changelogs. For example, see http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/u/udev/udev_0.105-4/changelog.
abrotman: "urgency" is mentioned in at least some packages' changelogs. For example, see http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/u/udev/udev_0.105-4/changelog.
abrotmani believe that's for uploading and migration to testing from unstable
daliashey
who maintains the debian installer stuff?
kingsleyThe udev package has had five "urgent" new versions since the one I installed about five months ago. What do you think, should I upgrade?
dalias: Debian Install System Team <debian-boot@lists.debian.org>
daliasi meant like folks who'd like to talk :)
abrotmanduh
daliasi have a terminal which i hope could eventually replace bterm to support more languages in the installer
abrotmankingsley: why don't you run testing ?
erm .. stable
daliasand i figured it might be nice to ask them about feasibility, what features it'd need, etc.
kingsleyabrotman: Newer packages.
abrotmanbut you don't update them for mjonths
why even bother
kingsleyabrotman: It seems to me that the decision of when and how much to upgrade should assume that package dependencies are correct, and consider the bugs currently existing, vs the risk of introducing new ones. I assume that upgrading fewer packages maximizes the chance of fixing existing bugs, while minimizing the risk of introducing new bugs in other packages that currently work.
actionkingsley needs to go soon.
kingsleyneeds to go soon.
abrotmanwimp .. upgrade them all
ctcp_deathi've had unstable break on me one two many times to trust it. I definitely don't like to use report-bugs or whatever to check if everything might be ok
superlinuxhi all
is "etch" equivalent to testing section?
rahulfor now
ctcp_deathi stick to stable and oh so carefully turn to backports if necessary. either that or try to build my own packages.
superlinuxaha
kingsleyctcp_death: How's it working out for you?
superlinuxso i said in the sources like "... etch main contrib non-free ..." it's the same as "... testing main contrib non-free ..."
?
jimmybgoodsuperlinux: if you want etch put in etch - if you want testing put in testing
superlinuxi noticed that debian stable has tooo old stuff like 3 years at leasts
ok
jimmybgoodsuperlinux: etch may be stable within hours
superlinuxaha
Roninor not
superlinuxok
jimmybgoodor months
superlinuxhehe!
ctcp_deathkingsley: well I can put together a deb in my sleep. that is if i can get the damn thing i can package to build, which can be quite a trial.
