Default Unofficial Debian Monthly Testing Snapshot Release (version 2011.06)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the unofficial Debian monthly testing snapshot
release for June 2011 (version 2011.06). 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/2011.06/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.06-i386-mini.iso
sha512sum: f4839b92e8d090f7799f0e46b386c07522310d21a4fb053975 86462d1024384e201a1f2ceb16e1adb8bc538231418b17bda1 d846023326bb58d1cd7559af341f
http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.06/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.06-amd64-mini.iso
sha512sum: c98ebd24550b8f64929967e1f5b09b56d746f7d1654b3a4978 d67c58665203739a31922872a82730990d5423533e4a89a057 321117a825daa317187f54addd61

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/20110531T215005Z wheezy main
deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110531T215005Z 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 at lists.alioth.debian.org.

Best wishes,
Mike

Thanks! Do these snapshots contain the proprietary binary drivers missing from Debian
regular installation media?

No, but they do contain a newer kernel than stable, which may have better
support for such hardware. There were cd images that included non-free
firmware on cdimages.debian.org at one point, but I forget where.
You can probably google that.

Best wishes,
Mike
