Etch Is Still Better

,----[ Quote ]
| I’m not sure why, but after testing Lenny several different ways, Etch is 
| still better. In fact, Lenny is downright inferior. 


A Few Questions For Eric Sharkey

,----[ Quote ]
| Debian is still my OS of choice. I have it on my workstation in my home 
| office, and my laptop, and is the supporting OS for the MythTV in my living 
| room. I used to use it at work, but after switching jobs in 2005 I am 
| unfortunately working in an all Fedora environment. (It could be worse, of 
| course.)     



Two in race for Debian project leader

| It's that time of the year again - the Debian GNU/Linux project is in
| election mode with the process for electing a leader for 2009-10 having
| begun.
| The campaigning period goes on till March 28 and the online voting process
| will be conducted between March 29 and April 11. The new leader will begin
| his term on April 17.


Interview: Steve McIntyre of Debian

| hO: Lenny is out, which is great news. Debian has a history of very long
| release cycles, compared to other distros. "release when ready" is the
| project's motto. Will that be changing in the near future?
| SM: To a certain extent, that policy already has changed. In the past, we
| didn't mention potential release dates at all and we'd simply aim to release
| when certain goals had been met. For the last two release cycles, we have
| instead tried to pick a target release window (18-24 months from the previous
| release) and some goals that should fit that target date. In each of those
| releases (Etch and Lenny), I'm happy that we have hit the target with both
| taking 22 months. It would be nice to be closer to the beginning of that
| window, but it's difficult to guarantee that we'll get there every time when
| we're working as volunteers.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
