Debian adds security support for the testing release (page 363)

Document Actions

Reported on: 2005-09-25

In chapter 7. Security of the Debian system on page 363:

Joey Hess announced the full security support for the Debian testing release. Even though still inofficial, this makes Debian testing a viable alternative to the stable release, for those with needs for greater currency of software.


The support is given by the secure testing team, which established itself over the past year. Even though testing security support is still inofficial, efforts are underway to consolidate and better integrate stable and testing security in the future, to enable official support to be given by the Debian project.


Joey Hess and the Debian Secure Testing Team

Kristin Shoemaker, I highly recommend The Debian System to anyone interested in how free/open source software works. I especially recommend it to intermediate Linux users, whether or not they're running a Debian-based system (though I imagine they'll want to try one by the time they're done with the book).
