But what's the actual delay between release and actual distribution? Nobody outside the distro's know how long it takes before fixes (x.y.z+1 releases) reach the user. In many cases that includes the maintainer being left in the dark. But what's the average? I guess availability of said release in stable software is good enough, not actual penetration among users.
Maybe it's worth an article? (Although i guess it's hard to get data from redhat/novell, but they would know when actual customers upgrade).
I guess i'm asking for others to do the work ;)
