Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.


Dear Debian developers…

Why don’t we do something like a partial freeze, still considering newer kernels during the bug-squashing period? And fixing the kernel (and glibc and whatever depends on it) at the very last possible moment?

Take into consideration: Centrino2, for example. Lenny has a kernel version 2.6.26, which doesn’t support most of that newest hardware out of the box. Which is fine with me, since I know how minor and trivial it is to include newer kernels into Debian. But also consider end-users, and you’ll get a completely different picture.

What I want to say, and what I’m really afraid of, somehow – is: Lenny is and will be obsolete and outdated, before it’s even released.
