In fact the main problem is the "fear" of upgrade. If i understand
correctly what Olivier and all people wanting rolling mean, they fear
this "violent" upgrading, feeling it as a kind of lotery. Will it work
? Will it freeze ? Will there be some hidden bugs ? what will change ?
and if there is a bug, which of the 1497 packages upgraded is
responsible for it ?
Even though the upgrade have become more and more efficient along
times, there is a lot of sweat before, during and after an upgrade.
And sometimes, upgrading every 6 month a lot of machines can be quite
violent for a weak heart :)
