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.

Discussion

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.

Feedback

Mark Gibbs, Network World (28 Nov 2005): This book is unusual in that it is much more than a technical discussion - it delves into the philosophy of the system, explains how someone becomes a recognized Debian developer and details the way that Debian is licensed. That's not to say the book doesn't get technical. It provides a very well-written, soup-to-nuts explanation of how Debian is organized; how to install, configure and modify the system; and how to administer and secure it. Excellent and highly recommended.
