Default Unofficial Debian Monthly Testing Snapshot Release (version 2011.04)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the unofficial Debian monthly testing snapshot
release for April 2011 (version 2011.04). This release is currently
available in two flavors, i386 and amd64, as mini iso images (16 MiB
each) downloadable from:

http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.04/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.04-i386-mini.iso
sha512sum: b5f3a09ba740c45437fa62e50fbdcff74b1b5bae8affa9c81e 67e2eed0293e48ba14c5c9bed50879366fdf9352df05f0cfa7 4e6adb17dea2cea0b62d9102eb1a
http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.04/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.04-amd64-mini.iso
sha512sum: 421fc33b773fb8f242e288e6de8e937653eae10cf623c26060 5172666f1262662cd5c06e60f01a39e69aab3e52a706c8a30e cc5bbcd66fdb321f7b1c04b16feb

These files can be written to CD or DVD media or directly to a USB
stick. Instructions for USB installation can be found here:
http://www.debian.org/releases/squeeze/i386/ch04s03.html.en

IMPORTANT: There will be no inherent security support for these
snapshot releases. The images do automatically set up testing-security
as an apt source during installation, so any DTSA's (Debian Testing
Security Advisories) will be automatically applied to snapshot
installations. However, the security team does not issue many updates
this way anymore (optioning instead to primarily use unstable uploads
as a means to fix testing). This is an area that could potentially be
improved if there are volunteers interested in this problem. For more
information on current testing security processes, see:
http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/secure-testing/doc/narrative_introduction

Ideally for those wishing to have a mostly security supported system,
the snapshot media will simply be a reliable stepping stone for
installation followed by an upgrade to testing proper, which does
receive quasi-official support from the security team (i.e. uploads to
unstable that transition to testing).

To upgrade from a previous snapshot, change the existing snapshot entries
in your /etc/apt/sources.list to:
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110331T214934Z wheezy main
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110331T214934Z wheezy main
Note that upgradability of individual packages isn't necessarily
guaranteed.

Note that this is an unofficial project since it does not come with the
backing or support from Debian as a team, but hopefully that will
change in the future as the concept is proven out.

This message is being limited only to the debian-devel list to
(hopefully) keep the load on existing resources small for now, and to
determine whether a more robust hosting solution will be necessary for
future releases. This also provides a chance for feedback and
contributions from the devel community before attempting to target a
wider audience. Please keep in mind that this is an unofficial
test/development release before spreading the word too much.

Anyway, enjoy! And send feedback to cut-team@lists.alioth.debian.org.

Best wishes,
Mike Gilbert
