Ubuntu 10.10 already has Python 2.7

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=python2.7

Ubuntu 10.10 already has gcc 4.5

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=gcc-4.5

If Ubuntu can develop something quite stable with 6-month release cycles and 2-month stabilization cycles, why can't Debian try it? (openSuse has 9-month release cycle and also works well for them)

But it's not the default and not supported, so practically useless.

> Ubuntu 10.10 already has gcc 4.5
It's not the default, so it does not matter.

Debian has those packages as well, in experimental. In Ubuntu, there is no thing such as experimental, so it needs to be in maverick in order to be in Ubuntu.
