Default Unofficial Debian Monthly Testing Snapshot Release (version 2011.08)

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

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce the unofficial Debian monthly testing snapshot
release for August 2011 (version 2011.08). This release is currently
available in two flavors (i386 and amd64) as mini iso images downloadable
from:

http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.08/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.08-i386-mini.iso
sha512sum: bf4d0ae84fd9d0817bb647f8f0d727f84b317fac7b9d47b8a7 68256b1c3700252617f995ddebad6a4806f17e518fc515a2a5 3d04165439639df8b3d9de55578f
http://alioth.debian.org/~gilbert-guest/snapshots/2011.08/debian-testing-snapshot-2011.08-amd64-mini.iso
sha512sum: 33eef14ad7b2be8341774848f7ddb28a295528905613ee5c50 6b69ab9974de9ad29700a19d5fa22d0bfaae7779b96197e47f 7a257b789d1ca027bcfd47667213

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
