days...

He is probably talking about 'Marketing it that way' :)

Well, actually i'm way out of the box. First forget about releases!! Releases are still in the box way of thinking, and the current development model. What I was saying about LTS was: qoute: (It would almost be as an neverending stable version of rawhide). Let me clarify... In this development model you have only rawhide -> testing -> stable and this is a continuous flow of packages. Never broken by releases. Sometimes updates will change the way things behave and thus require an "mini freeze" this is a point in time where you need all the current updates to be able to get the next updates. Sequential updating that increments the system almost like a release but never breaks the dependencies like a release does.
