I'll take the prize for first newbie to comment on squeeze...
I was wondering, what are the main things new from Lenny to Squeeze. Back when it was Sid, I could find lots of information about what was wrong with it, but not what was new about it. I've been running Lenny, testing, and dont' know if I should stick with lenny, or upgrade to Squeeze, once it's officially released.
Will squeeze be as stable as Lenny was, or will it be pretty buggy? I know there's a strick set of criteria a package needs to follow to be put into testing, but I'm just wondering what testing is like at the beginning of its life cycle, as opposed to the end. (I switched to Lenny about a month ago).
Okay, so what is currently Sid won't become squeeze?
Let me see if I've got this straight. Lenny is dubbed "stable", and developments on it stop. Etch is scrapped. A brand new brantch called squeeze is started, and begins identical to Lenny. As things from Ubstable (sid) become suitable for testing, they move into Squeeze.
What is currently Sid remains sid, and has nothing to do with Squeeze, until its packages individually move into squeeze.
