Default Unofficial Debian Monthly Testing Snapshot Release (version 2011.05)

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

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the unofficial Debian monthly testing snapshot
release for May 2011 (version 2011.05). 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/2011.05/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.05-i386-mini.iso
sha512sum: e3d59503869b43e2b67628f28e141bfa712f52f5cffe65d650 14feea7eaafa9d967be10027ee15c8a31bd32b47f1f80d1503 a53026bd9687f5320048b4924c52
http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.05/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.05-amd64-mini.iso
sha512sum: 8507db11ba12aff122fe0d7e5f5dc1c033f519aa329fcd247d 8a36db7d3cab7bb07eb0ada2a2f2388d4b6de070f14e9d6ed7 48a392cada233b4a0f9539101909

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/20110430T092551Z wheezy main
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110430T092551Z 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.

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

Best wishes,
Mike Gilbert
