I have updated "Debian Reference" (English) in unstable with major
change in its contents: http://people.debian.org/~osamu/pub/getwiki/html/index.html
I have one question and generic request for review.
What is the next release name after lenny?
* generic request for review:
Debian lacks documentation efforts partly because very dynamic nature of
its distribution. Partly because its ... (I will refrain...).
Since it is major change, I would like to get feed back from its
Developer community. I am very much concerned on the contents in:
* 3. Debian package management: http://people.debian.org/~osamu/pub/getwiki/html/ch10.en.html#thekernel
* 10.5. The kernel: http://people.debian.org/~osamu/pub/getwiki/html/ch10.en.html#thekernel
I know one of the bad side effect of Debian Reference was use of
apt_preferences by the novice user. I hope I have fixed that
misunderstanding as much with this updates.
I also see too many documents encourage using /etc/apt/preferences when
they do not need it since archive is "NotAutomatic: yes" which sets
Pin-Priority to 1 (undocumented in apt_preferences. Bug#490347)
