Well, let's try to be constructive.
For all people interested into having a rolling release or a core based
distribution, I propose that they write a document explaining :
- the release process ( ie, what you put on iso )
- based on what criteria
- time based ?
- regular snapshot ?
- features based ?
- how to decide what packages are upgraded day to day
- what criteria for what kind of upgrade ( version upgrade, patch
- what procedure for upgrade ( test stage, direct upgrade ? )
- for how long
- how are updates built ( ie, against what tree )
- what packages are not upgraded , unless there is a release, if there
- what criteria warrant the stability of this component
- how do we decide it will be upgraded
Once people are able to produce this document, we will all be able to be
on the same wavelength.
