Maybe stable release?

Postby newerusebtfrs » Sun Aug 28, 2011 13:43

I'm not saying that sabayon is not stable but problems happens too often to use it for example in the office. I have an idea to make another repository ( I don't know is it hard to do or not). Now we have daily and weekly. Maybe it is good idea to make something like this:

daily: unstable
weekly: testing
monthly: stable
6 month: ultra stable :)

I can use testing in the home but sorry in the office I will install stable or even ultra stable.
It's only idea. Do what you wont this is your distribution :)

BTW
Good job boys :)

We already have a testing repo.

Testing: Unstable
Daily: Pretty stable
Weekly: Stable


If you are really concerned about doing updates, the safest thing to do is watch the forums for recent complications and wait until they are sorted out, which is typically within hours. And most of those complications are from people on daily, which is why weekly is now the default.

OK but where I can get "unstable" repo? Except that, let's be serious debian stable is piece of crap. I need something in between of debian and sabayon weekly I can invest "few" euro to do it, but I really really need stable distribution because of my "IT specialist" who know only windows XP and I need to invest more money to train him. Probably windows xp will "die" about 2014. With my 36 computers plus server on windows 2008 I need to do something! I use sabayon for while but... hmmm it is very very good but I need, a little more :)

If you need the most stable you can possibly get, then Sabayon probably isn't the best fit.

Sabayon has a pretty strong focus on being cutting edge while still being stable. If you are solely focused on being stable, then you are in a very tiny minority of Sabayon users.

I do encourage you (and anybody else who feels the same that you do) to speak up and let us know what you want. So don't take this as my attempt at chastising you. But until there is more of a demand for this behavior in Sabayon, which might not come until it has a larger user base and more devs, I doubt what you are asking for will happen.

Maintaining repos takes server space, development effort and testing effort.
