For me, the ideal Debian desktop system would be:
- Fresh packages, some non-critical bugs acceptable.
- Not frozen at any point, i.e. _true_ rolling.
- No architecture waiting for another.
- No dependency breakage, i.e. _always_ installable/upgradable.
This is currently not satisfied by SID or testing (especially during freeze). I do realize that it's a tall order, but I also believe it's within reach. Maybe best served by a repository between testing and unstable, with some added rules. So, something like:
Experimental (as today) -> Unstable (as today) -> Rolling (no dep.breakage+no critical bugs) -> Testing (as today) -> Stable (as today)
But I'm probably just naive....
