I actually agree with her here. 2.1 is based on etch, period. All this
messing about with Lenny has nothing to do with the currently released
She actually beat me to it, as I also noticed that the vast majority of
the list traffic lately has been Lenny related, with a small number of

It does not really matter _why_ you feel that you need to complicate
your install with unstable sources. If the current version is missing
features and packages that you would like to see included, then the
devel list is the appropriate place to address these concerns and

She (and I for that matter) are concerned with traffic that relates to
people adding Lenny sources. As far as I am concerned, GFX card
discussions are on topic.

This can be confusing, even for veterans. Which list, which forum
