This new strategy* is already very successful and not only will it make it easier for us to release 17.1 and allow us to focus more on the development side of things, it already benefited the 17 release greatly. The same strategy could be applied to LMDE by basing it on Debian Stable, essentially migrating it from a snapshot cycle to a frozen one, like in Linux Mint. The two distributions would then be more similar to each others. LMDE would gain in quality and attention to detail while requiring less maintenance. The pros and cons are being assessed at the moment. Don’t hesitate to use the section below if you want to comment on this or share your ideas with us.
Wat mij betreft een mooie ontwikkeling.
* dit slaat op de recente wijziging dat de Ubuntu gebaseeerde versies alleen nog op LTS versies gebaseerd zullen zijn.
