Good to have alternatives, and i consider making use of them. But, as
side effect, we step out of the "stable" concept for productive
environments, don't we? With no basic "in time" security updates? I
really appreciate people supplying backports, sideports and other
repositories, and i know they support this as far as possible. But this
probably less standardized as "regular security support".
Have there been any efforts/ideas to prevent this split-ups? There
schould be significant demand from users running "stable" servers,
needing stabel _and_ current services like exim e.a. I'm shure this is
an issue. Has it been addressed before in Debian community? I know
software is somtimes a fast moving target, especially in the line of
network and security. And this is contrary to the stable concept and the
underlying time-span realized by Debian people. And for myselve, i have
no idea how to deal with this. So, i'll go "as is"...
