grrr! what a fib i run unstable in my libranet without issue and the packages are at best only a few weeks behind. Well except for X, KDE3, and GNOME2. But if you know how to type and google will lead you to those debs and ---hmmm--- there is always source. (BTW the X 4.2 experimental debs work great).how is the software status on Lunar, to me it looks a bit like Debian, lots of outdated packages
as you may have found with Gentoo "bleeding edge" is not all it is cut out to be
oh and threason it takes debain dso long is because they have lots of platform to port to and they want to make sure that broad stability is there and bugs are mostly worked out. Nothing wrong with that considering how much 'bleeding edge' types whine when something is not working 'like it used too'.
so many hypocrits so little time :
That is the crux of the whole situation...if you make everything bleeding edge and it doesn't work, they complain. Take a little time, make everything as stable as possible, they complain. Well, you can't please all the people all the time, so screw'em. That is why most projects have a mission statement...if you don't agree, find another project that has a mission statement that you agree with.
