But woody is so old as to be useless, unstable is too unstable (a sid update broke ssh recently, which is a complete disaster when you can't get to your system remotely), and until recently sarge systems tended to be inconsistent (half of an older Gnome or KDE and half of a newer one).
It seems like there's a place for a 4th version of Debian between unstable and testing. Maybe based on unstable, but a week or two behind in the updates. This way when something bad happens, like a broken X server, there's time to fix it before it propogates to "semi-unstable."
Is there any provision for telling apt to delay updates for x number of days? If there is/were, that would be a nice way to control the "unstableness" while still using the same repository.
